You Rock - Birthday

Here is my last post for today!! It feels good to be back, to be honest I'm glad if I post once a week ;)))

Today I made a male card around music! I made one for my hubby a while ago, this is for one of his band mates from his wife!!

Here is my creation:

I found an amazing pack of paper at HomeSense, a new store opened up in my area...not sure if that's a good thing..LOL!! The paper is from DCWV paper stacks, the rockstar mat stack collection. I also used ribbon from American crafts and Robyn's dew drops. Of course I can't make a card without using one of my die cuts or my embossing folders, I don't know what I did before I had those...LOL!!

I will be entering the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamps challenge, anything goes
Tuesday Alchemy, anything goes
Aud Sentimetns challange, use any sentiment
Craftymess Challenge, #24 show some sparkle/bling ( I think my guitars do the trick ;) )

That's it for tonight! Hope you all have a great time bringing in the New Year!! Drive safe and be good!!

Here are a few sympathy cards, take a look:
