40th Birthday Card for my Nephew

My eldest nephew celebrated his 40th birthday on Monday, and like his cousin,
he too is teaching himself to play the guitar. So I made him a different guitar card.

After searching Pinterest for ideas, this is what I came up with.
I drew the shape of the guitar freehand onto a piece of wood effect card, 
cut out the framed circle, then attached the gold cord with brads for the strings.
I used 3D foam to attach this to the black base card, then a
dded the sentiment and the number to finish.

The products I have used are:-
Presscut - Happy Birthday
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Circles
Docrafts - Number dies
Challenges entered:-
A Place to Start - Caffeinated Tones

Thank you for visiting my blog today.
