Music Concert Birthday

Today's card is for a friend who is a seasoned music fan and concert goer  - and also uses the fabulous sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week.

This great sketch can lend itself to many themes I think - even this one!

And I know this card's recipient's favourite artist is Neil Finn who is a guitarist and  coming to Australia on tour next month so the sadly retired Extreme Guitar stamp was the obvious choice :-) 

The bright chevron stripes are supposed to represent some vibrant stage lighting….and what star wouldn't benefit from the odd sequin :-) And the tickets are hand cut  - although there is a punch available it hasn't made it's way here yet!

Card stock: Island Indigo, Whisper white
Designer Series Paper: Watercolor Wonder
Ink: Island Indigo, Crisp Cantaloupe, Gumball Green
Stamps: Extreme Guitar, Just Sayin', Take the Ticket
Accessories: Big Shot, Word Bubble Framelits, Crisp Cantaloupe Twine*, Sequins (non SU)

* Available as part of the freebie items during Saleabration

With the welcome cooler weather and touch of rain the dogs have enjoyed some good play time this week.

Lots of love amongst the rough and tumble

And young Monty will lie on his back and beg for Sally's attention who pretends to ignore him

Happy stamping until next time



  1. Fabulous card, Jan! This is a really retro and trendy card design and I'm sure your recipient will love it - especially if they love Neil Finn, who is a fellow Kiwi :) Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.

    1. Thank you so much Karren! It was a fun card to make :-) Great sketch too!

  3. Oh, I love that DSP featured on a masculine card. Fabulous design and pairing of paper and elements! Thanks so much for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches.

    1. Thank you so much Rita! I hope it's not too masculine as I actually gave this card to a girl :-)
