Cute and Simple Birthday Card

Today I have a very cute and simple card to share. I made a card last week for my Father-in -laws birthday but my hubby thought it looked like a Child's card. This is what I created instead. Clean and Simple. I used my cricut to cut the guitar from the Everyday Paper Dolls Cartridge. I layered onto cream cardstock to cut my own shadow then inked the edges using the color tea die Distress ink. I printed the sentiment from my computer. I used my sewing machine to stitch the guitar stings and then edged the card with more stitching to finish.

Thanks for stopping by to look at my creation and have a happy crafty day!

I like the paper piecing! Great male card, and it'd make a great girl card with some girly paper! did you ever get the e mail from me with your images?
