It's Only Rock n Roll 40th Birthday Card!

It's my friend's husbands 40th Birthday at the weekend. As he plays in a band I thought that this card would be appropriate. I have to say a huge thank you to the lovely Karen (aka Flourgirl) for this image and for helping my missing mojo to return. She made a fantastic card last week which sparked my imagination and led to a nice few hours crafting.

I made the card base using basic black cardstock and layered embossed silver paper onto it. I printed the words directly onto the Prima Papers and have used Glossy Accents to add dimension. I've also used glossy accents on the word stars, glasses, guitar and shoes - hopefully you can see that clearly from my third picture.The guitar lead is made from embroidery thread coloured with Promarkers.
