Guitar Boy.............

A quick post with a quick card made for my Grandsons 9th Birthday I always have the same brief for his cards "Red" it is his favourite colour always has been, finding an image for him gets harder as he is getting older I really don't have many male images for young people.  After a rummage this stamp from Lili of the Valley (which I am ashamed to say has never been inked) came to the rescue, ........he has  started learning to play the guitar so it was perfect.

The image was washed with Distress inks and water cut out with spellbinders I also cut a mat from coordination's red card and sanded a little, 9 and Happy Birthday are Kanban Stamps, patterned paper and a card blank and voila it was done.  Inside - I added an insert printed from CD rom with a special verse for a special Grandson.  
He loves to receive a card made by me and always asks before he opens it  "did you make it Nanna" and his face lights up when I say yes he rips it open and really studies the card asking questions............it really is a pleasure to make his cards just to see his face light up..................

I would like to play at the following challenges
