First of all, the Tuesday Throwdown challenge is a color challenge- Stampin' Up's Pumpkin Pie, Pretty in Pink, Real Red and Summer Sun. I never would have put these colors together, but I like it!!! Here is my card using this terrific color combination:
The stamp set that I used is called Rock & Roll. It's a pretty cool set that is perfect for the guys in your family- especially those pre-teens and teens- or any musician. The set consists of a guitar, a drum set, a microphone, a flourish (seen on the card above), a flourishy-type musical score (also on the above card), and several sentiments, and will be available for puchase on Thursday. I kept my card pretty simple because of all the different colors. Instead of using plain Real Red cardstock, I used one of the patterned papers from SU's Christmas Cocoa DSP set. The card is pretty self-explanatory so I won't go into detail. After stamping the 3 images onto the GP110 white cardstock, I sponged around the 4 corners using our challenge colors, then added a couple of red brads (Recollections).
