Happy Birthday Pops

This is a birthday card made for my FIL who loves playing guitar.  I printed the "Happy Birthday" music sheet from the internet.  The tickets stubs, ripped notebook paper (bottom layer), music notes bar AND guitar were all cut by my Silhouette machine.  Oh and the guitar??  Looks finicky?!  IT WAS!  But worth it cuz he loved it.  I even added strings although only half way I thought it was a good attempt.  LOL!!  

The picks I made myself and the stars are Maya Chipboard and I added the paper to them and finished them off with Crackle Accents.  

The card reads:

You can pick your guitar,
You can pick your friends,
You can pick your nose,
But you can't pick your birthday.

Aaaaahhhh ha ha ha ha!  Yup I did make this one up!!  All by myself!  And giggled most of the time I was doing it!

I am so jealous that I could never think of a card like that when making one for a male. I hate making male cards as I always struggle but this card is fantastic (think I may have to case!) Hugs from bron xoxo
