I made this card to thank him for everything he's done for me these past two years and also to wish him all the best in the future.
Since I liked the sketch from this weeks Sketch'n'Stash challenge so much, I thought I'd use it again.
Starting with some 6x6 DP paper which is actually a map of Southern Italy (how perfect was that), I inked up some glossy cardstock with yellows, browns and gold alcohol inks to tone in with it and cut 2 ATC cards using the Tim Holtz ATC die. One I overstamped with a Cities of the World montage stamp from Katzelkraft, and the other with this music score stamp from Stempel Winkel. On another scrap I stamped this saxophone, and fussy cut it out. I then mounted this on the musical score with dimensional tape. This saxophone stamp is really old. I think I bought it for Gavin's 4th birthday invitations and he has just turned 20 - I'd say that qualifies for digging deep into the stash.
I also used Craft Individuals stamp set CI-239 to create the small elements on the left. All edges were distressed with Antique Linen Distress Ink. The sentiment was computer generated and cut with the Spellbinders Nested Pennants set.
