Fender Card

My Brother-In-Law's birthday is coming up soon.  He just loves guitars and music.  Let me be more specific....he loves Fender Guitars and music! 

Well, when I found a left behind Fender pick at our house, it made me think of the ever so popular Stratocaster.  It then made me think that I could use the pick on his birthday card.  Then I remembered an image from The Greeting Farm I had received from a friend at SCS.  I have only worked with one other TGF image, so it was fun to play. 

So here is Rock Star Anya, with her Stratocaster and Fender pick:

The card base is Stampin' Up! Basic Black.  The second layer is Stampin' Up! Going Grey. The DP is from DCWV, Musical Notes.

The image was cut out with Nestabilities.  I then sponged the background with Stampin' Up! Going Grey ink.  The image is colored with Copic Markers.  I added a few Stickle highlights and then sprayed the image with Shimmer Sparkle Spray.

I had the ribbon and eyelets on hand.  The sentiment was computer generated.

Thanks for looking.....hey; doesn't all this guitar talk make you want to listen to some music?!  Better get goin'!
