For a music loving grandson

A lady I know....but don't know very well......commissioned me to make 3 cards for her......now while I do sometimes sell cards to family and friends......I've never actually had a 'brief' before and so it was a bit nerve wracking making these cards......and wondering whether she'd actually like them!!
The first one was for her grandson's 21st birthday......he's studying music at college.....and plays guitar in a band.
It was pretty lucky I had some guitar paper......the image is a digital stamp [the guitar isn't actually the same colour as the shirt!].......it ended up being quite an easy card to make.....but I was still worried about whether she'd like it.
The first thing she said was "OMG.....that looks just like him......and you've never even seen him"
I think she liked it!
And it's a long time since I entered in any challenges......so.....
Cutie Pie Challenge and Clear it Out Challenge want 'one for the boys'.....Charisma Cardz want 'a number'......Cute Card Thursday want 'hip to be square'.....and Totally Papercrafts want 'birthday boys'

No wonder she loved it. The patterned paper in the background is just perfect, too.

working on commissioned projects can be quite nerve-wracking. But the card is awesome! What's not to like?

This is gorgeous Jacky, no wonder at all that she loved it :) .. and when someone commissions you to make a card you shouldn't worry at all as they asked you because they like your cards ;) xxx
