18th Birthday

 Well I did manage this morning to pull a card off my table, but it is the last one until I do some clutter control, I have about an 8" sqr. in which to work at this moment, oh how quickly it gets trashed on that table top, lol.  I was asked to create an 18th Birthday Card for my friends grandson.  I used Graphic 45 Kraft Paper Collection "Elusive Wings", I scanned it in and also printed it off onto tissue paper, distressed extensively with Ranger Inks "Pumice Stone", "Antique Linen" and "Vintage Photo" and married the tissue to the background with a stiffener and then curled the edges of the tissue.  I then did some stenciling with "Pumice Stone" in 3 of the corners The guitar is from Circut Imagination "JT", I cut it four times so it is dimensional..  The "S" is from QuickKutz "Abigail" and the "18" is from Cricut "Plantin Schoolbook".  Stars are from an EKSuccess Punch.  Overall size is 6"X6"
Hope everyone has a fab weekend.  Hugs
