Today I'm sharing the birthday card I made for my son's 33rd birthday in February! Since he's my favorite guitar player, I just had to make him a guitar card! Even though he plays both the electric and acoustic, I chose to use the classical guitar stamp from the Country Livin' stamp set. This print from the Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack made a perfect background for the guitar! I chose to add color with the Watercolor Pencils and Aqua Painters. The sentiments are from the Birthday Bright stamp set from the Occasions catalog.

- Very Vanilla cardstock . . . 4" x 5-1/4" for card insert
