Happy Birthday

 Morning and I needed a masculine birthday card with no ideas then remembered this stamp set from AALL&Create.First of all I cut a piece of cardstock and die-cut(from creative dies)the apertures,then on another smaller piece I drew round the apertures with a fine liner pen  and stamped the images in the circles -sounds simple but came to this idea after ripping up two goes! I stamped the music score doodled round the borders and the stamped sentiment was a craft mag freebie, the put them both together with 3D foam pads.

This is a fantastic masculine card. My sympathy about the first 2 tries I think we all know that frustration of trying to get the idea to work. You did that skilfully, thank you for sharing with us at We Love Stamping and Good Luck xx
