You Rock Electric Guitar Card

Hi crafty friends!! I got to play a little bit yesterday and made a graduation card for my nephew. He plays electric guitar and my hubby thought I should make a card similar to the one I made for my son with the drums. This is what I came up with.

I used my Gina Marie Dies for the cross stitch panel and watercolored it the same way I did my son's with the Tim Holtz Barn Door Distress Ink and my Zig watercolors. I cut the guitar from my Cricut Indie Art cartridge with glittery red cardstock. I tried to make the guitar similar colors to the one he owns. 

I forgot to take a pic of the inside but I stamped it to say Congratulations on your Graduation using my Joy's Life Everyday Occasions stamps. The You Rock sentiment was stamped and embossed and is from the Joy's Life Father & Son stamps. 

I added some silver spash/drops from my Silver Metallic Wink of Luna Pen. I adhered the guitar with some foam tape and I was done. No sequins or rhinestones... after all this is supposed to be masculine LOL!

Thanks so much for hopping by!!

I will participate in the following challenges:
Die Cut Diva's- Anything Goes
Word Art Wednesday- Anything Goes
