My very special niece is turning 13 TOMORROW!!!! I can't believe that she's 13...although I'm sure her mom is having a MUCH harder time believing that than I am! I wanted to do a really special card for this momentous occasion. I know that she plays the guitar, so I wanted to incorporate guitars into the card somehow. Since I don't have the Grunge Rock set (was my first choice for the card), I went with the Extreme Guitar set.
My color scheme for this card is Eggplant Envy, Melon Mambo and Old Olive. I added some of the music paper from the Newsprint DSP (man, I'm gonna miss that DSP pack!), which I scrunched and crumpled and tore a bit. It's layered with a piece of embossed Old Olive which I cut with the Tasteful Trim die.
I added a Melon Mambo scallop circle which is layered with a Very Vanilla circle which I collage stamped with the Extreme Elements set.
Now the focal point...this is the part that made me squeal!!!! I mean, what 13 year old, guitar playing girl wouldn't LOVE a pink glittered rock star...right? I stamped the rock star with Versamark ink and then used some Heat & Stick Powder on it. Once it was heated and good and sticky, I dumped some fine pink glitter all over it, shook off the excess and then cut it out! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!! After it was cut out, I added it to the card with
I even decorated the inside of this card!
I'm thrilled with the way this card turned out and I hope she loves it as much as I do! My friend Sherri brainstormed this card with me, so I have to say a HUGE thank you to her.
What do you think?
Have an inspired day!
