Colour Create - Blue & Green ~ 365 Cards - Sketch


My friend asked me to make a card for her brother's 60th birthday. The information she gave me was his name and the fact that he liked guitars. I decided to use the sketch from 365 cards and the colours from Colour Create. I was grateful to both challenges as I had tried to begin this card several times and got nowhere, but with the parameters given by the challenges, it seemed to come together more easily.
I stamped the backing paper with the guitars and decided to use the clapper board as the focus for the numbers. The other papers are Canon and the letters are Cuttlebug Babyface. The border is Martha Stewart (part of my prize from Secret Crafters)... just love it.
Sorry about the picture, the light was rather poor.
PS The guitar and clapperboard stamps are from a set of clear stamps called Hollywood Greats, www.crafting.co.uk
