Wanna play...

with my pink guitar?

Holly from Hog Wild About Stamping created a guitar card almost a month ago and she was even featured on Card of the Week.com for her cool card. The template can be found at Papershapez (used to be Stampinspot) as a free download. I printed the template once I saw Holly's card and set it aside. And last night, while going through my printed templates, I thought of why not making my own guitar card?

Growing up, I've always wanted to learn how to play a guitar not just because it's cool to play but I wanted to have my own pink Hello Kitty guitar...LOL! This card was supposed to be a Hello Kitty guitar but I don't have any stamp or stickers. So, I just used my Stampin' Up Love & Happiness rub-ons. I really like how Holly added a pick on her card so I added one also. Now I have my own pink guitar, I just need to learn how to play.

Paper: Basic Black, Pretty in Pink and Pixie Pink card stock from Stampin' Up

Accessories: Stampin' Up Love & Happiness Rub-Ons, Silver Brads, Silver cord, Circle Coluzzle, Guitar Template and Stamping Dimensional
