Lewis's 13th!

This is the card I made for my Son's 13th birthday. he is guitar Mad and is always leaving one lying around.
The stamp is from the Rock star set from Inkadinkado and has been stamped with stayzon and heat embossed with a slight sparkle. The background has been sponged with vibrance ink after seeing a tutorial on splitcoast stampers. And the paper was given to me by a friend. I deleted the earlier pic as it was to dark and didn't really show up the stampin.
