LIM #190

Face The Music and Dance is the challenge at Less Is More.  My son is turning 16 next week and he likes to play guitar.  I used my own inspiration from my daughter's card which you can see here.  I like how the DMC threads look on the card and this time instead of drawing the notes, I managed to find the music dies from Memory Box.  Added some glossy accent on the notes. The guitar is cut from paper patterned which was bought several years ago.  I am also popping this card into Simon Wednesday Challenge with "Anything Goes" and Addicted to Stamps.



As a 16 years old, he only wanted a gift card, so here is the envie on the inner card.  The "happy"sentiment is from Technique Tuesday and the "birthday"is from PTI.  The flap of the envelope is stamped with the HA Music Background.


Today has been raining and I guess autumn is really here....

The stars make the perfect base for the guitar! And I love the musical staff with the thread, so clever.
