Tunes for you

Hi everyone! Hope you are experiencing good weather wherever you are. We actually had some cool days last week which were absolutely wonderful considering we've had temps as high as 90 degrees already! It's time for another fun challenge over at Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog and I'm happy to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #77 - Anything Goes! We're being sponsored this time by Doodle Pantry, SLS Lines and Dr. Digi's House of Stamps so come play with us for a chance to win some amazing prizes!

I chose the uber cool Davey Dunderton from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps for my rock tunes birthday card. Old guys rule, lol! And they always make me think 'red, white and blue' for some reason. I used a retro background stamp that I've had forever, stamped in blue, along with red and white diagonal stripe paper, all layered on gray cardstock. I've been on a diagonal stripe kick - you'll be seeing it in various colors on cards coming up. Needless to say, I had a good time putting this together, snickering pretty much the entire time! ;)

The musical notes and tiny hearts were cut with some dies I got a few months back so it was fun breaking them out and using them for the first time on this card. :)

For the inside, I stamped the sentiment in the same blue ink as the circle retro background strip on the front and layered the panel on red and then gray cardstock. I added a musical note for a little interest.

Happy to enter this rockin' birthday card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury White and Cherry Red cardstock, Stampin' Up! Regals Designer Series Paper Stack (#138436), Stampin' Up! Basic Gray cardstock (#121044)
