Go where the guitar takes you

Nearly everything on my card comes from the design sheet, all I have added is an additional layer of backing paper and the stars have been fussy cut from another backing paper in the collection.


I have used the decoupage layers included on the design sheet to add some dimension to my image and fussy cut all of the elements and a sentiment.
