Big Guitar!

Working in IT is still a pretty masculine environment and the boys outnumber the girls almost 4 to 1 in our offices so I have the need to make quite a lot of guy cards which can sometimes be a problem.  But our birthday boy today is easy as he is hugely into music so any music themed card works for him.  I needed a quick card again so turned to my new best friend, yep you guessed it - the silhouette came out to play again!

The guitar image (from the cameo online store) is made up of a circle of blue with the black layers over the top to form the guitar shape.  The white panel is actually the blue cut out piece which I embossed with a layer of white and then a layer of pearl shimmer to give it that fender look!  Birthday was cut on the silhouette too and sized to fit.  Wishes is from a Waltzingmouse Christmas sentiment set - Winter Holiday  I like to mix straight fonts with something more curly in senitments as it adds more interest - particularly when they are large statement sentiments like these.

I am going to enter it into this weeks Here Come The Boys challenge which is "Boys and their toys"
