Musical Manly Birthday Card

Here's a birthday card that I made for my brother-in-law. He's a musician, so I wanted to use the sheet music pattern from the Imagine Black & White cartridge. I printed it on white cardstock, and then grunged it up with turquoise, green, and black ink and the Papertrey Ink Grunge Me stamp set.

For my sentiment, I cut my label using the brand new My Creative Time Curly Label die. I used images from two different My Creative Time stamp sets on this label: Inspiring Words {Accents} for the black frame and Wow! So Many Candles for the sentiment. I love this look!

My guitar is cut from Groovy Times. Sorry - I forgot to save the file on my Gypsy, so I'm not sure of the size. To add a little more interest, I used black ink to stamp a swirl from Grunge Me onto it and popped it up with some pop dots.
