Simon Says - All That Sparkles

Hi everyone. I have just popped on to show my Dad's birthday card. It was his birthday yesterday so we had a wee cake for him. He loves music so I bought this template when I was at the craft fair with his birthday in mind.

Sorry for the poor quality of the pictures. These were the best I could get.

So, the template was an Anne Marie Design. I used card, a button, some sticky gems, embroidery thread and stickles for the guitar. I also used a pritt stick to stick it all together. This was a nightmare for me as I absolutely hate pritt stick. I can't stand being sticky and then it picks up any bits of fluff and...ugghh...I just can't stand it. Anyway, I am pleased to say that my dad liked it - my dad always shows if he doesn't like something,lol! I have also usd som music script paper and added a wee guitar charm. This was a brilliant bargain. I got a pack of 6 music themed charms for £1 from a bargain book shop near us. I used a sentiment I have had for donkeys and added lots of stickles to 'bling' it up and add a bit of life to it, lol!

I would like to enter this card into the Simon Says Challenge this week where the theme is 'All That Sparkles'.

I hope you like it
