Music Themed Birthday Card

Another month - another birthday !

My lovely son celebrated his birthday on Monday and horror of horrors - I nearly forgot to make him a card !!!! There I was cooking his favourite lasagne and chocolate brownies for a birthday dinner, when it slowly dawned on me that I hadn't made him a birthday card.  So quickly removing my apron, I darted up to the craft room and pondered over various ideas.

My boy is quite musical, having fronted a local band.  He likes to sing and plays the guitar, so I dug out some of my Paper Discovery dies from the Lost in Music Collection, opting for the String Ensemble and The Jazz Band Die Sets.

I thought it would be fun to add some strings to the guitar and used some fine metallic thread.

I used musical themed paper for the background, which is from the First Edition Perfect Moments 12 x 12 inch paper pad.

For the sentiment I used the Altenew Tall Alpha Stamp and Die sets.   I love the Altenew Tall Alpha collection.  I have the lower case sets too.  This is because as they are very slender, you can create long words in a limited space, which is not possible when using wide letter dies.  This is a 6 x 6 inch square card. I am happy with how it turned out, and Tom is very pleased with it.   

Hope you like it.

Bye for now and ...................."happy crafting everybody!"
