Boy guitar player

   My son's birthday is next week and this little chappy reminded me of when he was younger. I don't know that he will thank me for it but I couldn't resist using it on his birthday card!
   The stamp is from Lili of the Valley and I coloured the image using Promarkers and rubbed a little distress ink round three of the edges. The design paper is also from Lili of the Valley and this I matted and layered onto core'dinations cardstock and white card. The image I matted and layered onto a deeper blue LOTV paper and core'dinations cardstock twisting each slightly. The musical notes were cut using a tattered lace die, the words were created using dry transfer lettering and the corner embellishment was a coloured peel off.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Without Words - it's a celebration
   Lili Of The Valley - use their papers
   Little Claire's Designs - a man's birthday card
   Crafty Catz - one for the boys
