Musical Birthday

This card is for a fortieth birthday - a chap who is really into music. Still in my black/red/white period, maybe I will start pulling other colours out next week. I used the music note font from the Hannah Montana cartridge for the sentiment, and the guitar was cut at 2" from the same cartridge - this was one of those bizarre Cricut cuts that crop up from time to time. I set the machine to cut it at 4", and it was HUGE

I added some card candy from Craftwork Cards to dress the guitar up a bit...........
The swimsuit search goes on, how reassuring that so many of you have the same problems. It is a bank holiday weekend here in the US (Memorial Day) and also at home in the UK. So I hope wherever you are that the sun shines for you.

Enfys, I really like this card. Isn't it bizarre how some cuts are such a problem on the Cricut. Looks as though you had a solution though. Have a great weekend.

Hey Enfys, I love this card. I have a friend who plays in a band and I'm always looking for something appropriate for him. I don't have the HM cart, but I do have a stamp set. And so far tha's worked well. I do think I'm going hunting for some musical papers, to use on him.
And since this is a holiday weekend, I'm going to my local scrap store where they are having a BIG sale! Whooo Hooo! I love scrap shopping. I have a list, er, um... a long list.... Have a great weekend! Jess

Great card En! I've been quite unsuccessful using that musical note font and that's why I originally bought the cart. Love this! xxD
