Red Guitar

Hi again!  I'm back with a second post today.  I wanted to share a card I made for a couple challenges I enjoy doing when I have time.  I managed to finish this up after it sat on my desk for a couple of days.  I'll make it short and sweet!

My card base and mats are SU Real Red and the patterned papers are from the Echo Park Paradise Beach 6x6 pad.  The adorable image is Playing Guitar from Lili of the Valley. I stamped him on MiC Blending Card and colored him with my Copics.  I fussy cut the image and popped it up over a hexagon frame I cut with my Cameo.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A few musical notes (from the Silhouette store) and a chevron-striped bow finished my card.
Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by again.  I was out most of the day, but I will be around to visit as soon as I can.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Lili of The Valley Monthly Challenge (name that tune; I used Red Guitar by Kris Allen)
Sweet Sketch Wednesday2 #6 (sketch)
A Creative Romance (get sentimental)
Cute Card Thursday #308 (clever cutting)

Here is SSW2-06:

Have a great evening and weekend!


  1. Hi Carla, glad to hear you weathered the storm. We got 20" here and plenty of shoveling. Today was in the upper 40's so melting has started and with clean decks, paths for the kitties and a dry driveway I am happy.
    I love this card. The hexagon frame with those musical notes are so cute. Beautiful as always.
    Take care and stay warm.
