What do you call the Drummer.......

Morning all.

I must admit that the title of this post is a slight dig at one of my brother's in law. He is a drummer and we all know that drummers one day wanna grow up and be real musicians....hee hee hee. It was his birthday and I was inspired by this card. Sadly I do not have the creator and I have gone back through everything and cannot find the creator, so if it is you...thanks so much.

This is my version of the card above.....

I decided to carry the star theme through from the stamped background, to the brads to the punched shapes.

Now for those regular readers, you know that I do not wet emboss very often, but I braved it for this card. I think it came out OK....but I still need a lot more practice!!

I had a heap of fun putting this card together. I got to bust out Extreme Elements which create a fun and fantastic grunge background in next to no time.

Thanks for popping by.

Awesome! This is perfect and I think you'd best do some wet embossing more often as it looks great.
