You Rock!

Happy Thursday!
It's the start of my weekend! That's the problem working in dentistry...4 day weeks! :)

On to my DH asked me to make him a card for young man that he mentors. It is his 18th birthday. I have the hardest time creating cards for teens...especially guys!
But I came up with this idea!
 I wanted to utilize the technique featured on the tutorial for this week on Nichole Heady's
Make It Monday #55 for Paper Trey Ink
This technique shows how to use smaller frames to make  larger frames. 

I chose the Frame-It (Waltzingmouse) stamp set. I stamped the frames onto watercolor paper, making the 2 frames look like 1 long frame!
I spritzed the paper with water, then sponged it with Citrus and Sail Boat Blue alcohol inks (Ranger). The edges were then sponged with Silver Mixative (Ranger).

The guitar was cut on my Cricut  machine with the Nifty Fifties cartridge, set  at 5".  I sponged the edges with Black Soot Distress ink, and Silver Mixative.
I decided to attach the musical notes with dimensionals to make it look like they were floating around the card!
The sentiment "You Rock" is from the Thanks2You (Stamps of Life) stamp set. 
I added some pizazz with  2 silver embellies!
All of this was then adhered to white card base.

Thanks for stopping by!
