Guitar Hero

This card was one of the commissions that I think all card makers find tricky, a commission from someone you don't know with details given through a friend.  I just hope it fits the bill.  I was asked for a male twenty first card for somebody who plays guitar in a band and she wanted a large card.  I went for an 8x8 card in masculine monochrome.
The guitar topper was cut on my Mum's Silhouette and the rest was a simple mat and layer job with frosty mirri and a panel embossed in grey pearl paper using a music score folder.  The Happy Birthday was done with peel offs and punched circles and the numbers are chipboard which I triple embossed with silver powder.  I resisted temptation to go over board with the embellishments, opting for a few pieces of mirri Card Candi..
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
