Happy Sunday- Brother B-day Card.

Hi Everyone!

I hope you are having a great weekend!  Yesterday was gorgeous here after all the rain we've had - finally!   

I made this fun card for my brother.  It's difficult to design cards for guys, but I saw this guitar on the Smiley Face gypsy cartridge and it reminded me of the Blues Brothers movie that came out in the 80s.  He really liked that.  I used Glossy Accents for the sunglasses, antique silver ink to "distress" the images and lots of pop dots.  The silver ink looks cloudy in the  photo, but it really looks like metal.  I colored the cheeks with my Copics.  The music notes are from an old Sizzex die cut.  The card base is from DCWV - All About Boys stack.  It actually had Superman on the edge - I just trimmed it to an A-2 size.  I hope he likes it!

Thanks for looking and have a GREAT day!
