Rock Out

This is another card I made for my son during his deployment in Afghanistan. He loves music and is very good at playing music of all kinds. He was even requested to play the National Anthem to open the AIT graduation ceremony at Fort Leonard Wood, MO in 2009. He's left handed, taught himself to play a right handed guitar, and plays by ear. Although it may sound easy for a "lefty" to play a right handed guitar, it really isn't. Just for example, the guitar is turned upside down and facing the opposite direction so all strings are backwards. Anyway, while he was deployed my husband and I shipped his electric guitar and amp over to him. He was so excited when he received it! :) His music is a huge means of keeping himself "grounded" & his head "clear" so we were more than excited to send it to him.

Ok, the base of the card is Georgia Pacific white card stock. All other card stock is from the ROCKSTAR pack by DCWV (Die Cuts With A View). I used my white Gelly Roll medium point gel pen to create the "stitch" lines around the round embellishment of which has pop dots underneath to lift it off the card and create dimension. The copper brads are a product of Making Memories.
