Party Like a Rockstar

Good evening!  I hope everyone had a nice holiday and weekend.  Did anyone find any great Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals??  I didn't do any shopping over the weekend, but I know there were quite a few deals out there!

The project that I have to share tonight is a birthday card for my brother.  My brother played the guitar as we were growing up, and he still enjoys playing from time to time.  When I saw the rocker guy on the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge, I immediately thought him.  Here's the card I came up with.  Thanks to my good friend Melissa for the idea of tying strands of embroidery thread to the guitar for the strings!!
Solid cardstock from Bazzill and Recollections
Patterned cardstock from DCWV
Rocker guy and guitar from Everyday Paper Dolls cut at 3 1/2 inches
Ribbon from my stash
Face from Peachy Keen Stamp's Everyday Character Face Assortment set
Sentiment from Pink By Design's Rock On set
Embroidery thread, Glossy Accents, white Sakura gel pen


  1. Very Cute! Love the idea of the REAL strings!

  2. Oh this turned out great!!!! I'm actually proud of myself, I didn't shop. (well, not very much anyway. But I did a little) The floss looks great for the guitar strings, that was genius!!! I love the new blog background, too, the colors are great!!!!
