Guitar Card

Hey all,

My boyfriend's birthday is coming up and he is the hardest person for me to do anything for. He likes to play guitar (although he hasn't played recently) so I made him this card:

I cut circles from brown, black, and white cardstock using my circle cutter. I also cut a circle on the front cover of the card base. I used super thin metal wire that I took from ribbon that I bought from Big Al's a few years ago as the strings of the guitar. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the white piece on the bottom and the guitar pick. The words on the pick were written with my Silhouette Sketch Pens.

I stamped Happy Birthday through the hole on the card base so that it is seen on the outside and the inside of the card when opened.

Here is the inside:

I am entering these challenges:
