Have a Wonderful Day!

Good morning. I hope you are all keeping well and those not I wish well soon.
As my post title says - Have a Wonderful Day - I know I will because today is the day I'm meeting up with some of my bestest DT and blogging buddies - Claire, Laurie, Lisa and Pami for a fabulous crafty, chatty, chompy weekend - full of fun and frolics :o) I'm sooooooo excited lol!!!!

But before I set off on my trip up North I would like to share a card I have made at the request of my friend for someone she knows - brief was he plays guitar and is a bit of a mod!!

Here's what I came up with:
The brief gave me the opportunity to ink up this adorable stamp from LOTV for the first time :o)
Image coloured with PM's and edges inked with Old Paper Distress Ink to give it a vintage feel.
I went for red, white and blue colours to tie in with the 'mod' theme using the gorgeous sketch at 
Sketch Saturday this week.
As it's for a man I kept the embellies simple - just a little twine and a spotty button :o)
Design Papers - Papermanie 'Portobello Road'
Sentiment - Kaisercraft
Card base - Craftwork Cards

Challenges I would like to enter:
Sketch Saturday - Sketch #227
Inky Impressions - Boys
Whimsy Inspiration - Anything Goes
