Cupcake Craft Challenge #78 - Keep It Simple

Hello... it's Wednesday and mid-week, only 2 more days after today and then it's weekend... I've been commissioned to make a birthday card for a 16 year old who loves guitars and this is what I came up with.  A very simple card with very few embellishments, if any!  It seems fitting to enter it into the Cupcake Craft Challenge this week.  Hope you like it.  I've been asked to personalise the sentiment and will add this later.
As you know, I like to decorate the inside of my cards as well and as this is a special 16th Birthday... thought I would go all the way. 
The base of this card is black as I had a lovely piece of gorgeous DP with guitars all over it. Used a lot of glitter to outline the guitars to give it a bit of pizzazz!!!!  The only embellishment is a lovely guitar charm which I had in my stash.

Edit after posting
I thought I would take a pic of the completed card, with sentiment.  Reghardt's mother loves it.  Hope you do too!
Enjoy the rest of your week... we'll catch up again soon... take care, Sharon
