Birthday Card for a Teenager~

Hello Ladies~

What a cold day again today, I have actually got my nice warm dressing gown on now while I am crafting, and I think it's heating time again, so I will be popping the fire on in a mo!

It is my Nephew's birthday in a couple of weeks, so to get ahead I have made his card.
I was dreading making it as he is 17 and I just did not know what to choose as an image. I went through my box of stamped images and found this boy playing a guitar. As my Nephew plays guitar in a band I thought it would be the perfect image to choose. Not sure why I coloured the guitar Yellow!!, but somewhere in my brain (a very strange place!!) I think Robbie has a yellow/green guitar, so hopefully he wont think I have gone mad.
Image is coloured with Pro-Markers.
I think this lovely Tartan paper is from my pad of MME, but the music paper is ages old so no idea who makes this. The border punch is a MS, I think this one suits a man/boys card perfectly. The Sentiment is Craftwork Cards. The sweet little laser cut car is by Calico Crafts. Finished with a few Hobby House brown pearls.
