Hope Your Day Rocks!

Good morning and TGIF!!! I want to share a card I made just for fun. I do have someone in mind for this. One of my neighbors is celebrating his birthday today, and he happens to be a radio announcer, so I made an artistic version of a sound board on his card! (Yes, I know, it's a major stretch!) LOL! Check it out:

Here's the inside:

He's also a major Orioles fan, so, except for the red, I kept the card in the O's colors. On the main panel, I drew a light line in pencil to line up the yellow 'lights', then stamped orange and red randomly above it. I drew a line using a pen under the lights, then stamped the play/stop/reverse, etc. icons. I tried stamping the sentiment in Clear Snap orange chalk ink then covering with clear embossing powder, but I over heated one side of it. Grrrr!!! Oh well. I finished the inside and was done!

This set has such fun stamps for scene building. If you have it, break it out and get crafty! LOL! Thanks for stopping by!
