It's a Green Day Kind Of Birthday

Hi folks! Today's card is a very specific card, meant for someone who moved into the house behind me about 13 years ago and ended up being the best crafting and concert-going friend you could ever ask for. I'm so blessed.

It was her birthday yesterday, so Michele at CAS-ual Fridays was nice enough to let me postpone my post until after she had received the card. This photo was take at the most recent Green Day concert we saw together in Champaign, IL. Waiting in line several hours got us only a few rows behind center stage, right off the cat walk. It was unbelievably amazing!!!

Here are a few photos ...


 I still can't believe we were that close! Total fan girls.

Annnyway, to embellish the photo I stamped "rock" from  Flower Power and then borrowed an "o" and a "n" to make "on."

Here's a peek of the letters getting watercolored. The nice thing about cutting your letters out is that there is no need at all to be neat with your coloring!

To give this concert scene a little more life, I popped up "on" with black foam tape.

Here's the inside, with an appropriate sentiment from Frankly'isms and then a boarder stamped from Full on Floral.

I know this card doesn't have a ton going on stamping-wise, but I think my friend loved all the memories it brought back, and how personal it is. I know we are stampers, but it's good to remember that not every card has to be a stamping masterpiece to be appreciated!

This card is over at the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog if you'd like additional information. Feel free to use my code "KELLY2017" which will save you 15% off any purchases at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.
