Ally Birthday Card

Well today I started to feel a little brighter so thought I would take myself out to the cabin and have an hour or two me time. Kids just wanted a bit of time on computer/xbox. We've had some lovely family time playing board games over the last few days. Yeah Mum is still the champ at Blokus (well I was today anyway)!!!
Well don't know what January is like for you guys but I have loads of family and friends with Birthdays so thought I would make a start. I can't believe where the years have gone my little (well not so little ) boy will be ten. Oh dear that only means one thing I will get a year old as well !! Quickly moving on.
For Christmas he got a electric guitar and some headphones but to be fair it's great to hear him playing (well sometimes) even if the dog hates it. So of course the card had to be done on the guitar theme. I used my Funky Hands Happy Happy Birthday CD (which is on offer right now so pop over and have a look, grab yourself a bargain) for the papers. I added a super guitar digi image from Stitchy Bear which was the lovely prize I won on the a challenge over at Allsorts blog. I just sized it down and duplicated it to make a super backing paper. The letters have been covered in glossy accents for a 3D effect and little ruffled ribbon. The image is a Rock Star from sugar nellie range which I purchased some time ago from Cloudnine at Horncastle, I just love this stamp. Coloured up with my promakers.
I'm entering it in the challenge over on:-
