Stampin' Up! Grunge Rock, and Extreme Elements make a teenage birthday card

Today has been an epically long day... I had to go to work this morning, and open the shop, which meant being there by 4am (yup, 4am exists as a time....), so after getting home and napping, I had most of the day free... So, I made a couple of cards to share with you. Here's the first :)
Ok, so this is a Basic Grey card base, which I have layered with Real Red (which was run through the Big Shot with the Polka Dot embossing folder) I then stamped two scrap pieces of Basic Grey using the diamonds from Grunge Rock, and glued them in place. I then turned my attention to my main image panel. I have used stamps from Extreme Elements and Grunge Rock, in Real Red, Lucky Limeade, Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight and Basic Grey. The Guitar has been popped on dimensionals. I layered this panel on another piece of Basic Grey and then glued it to my embossed piece. I wrapped a piece of Real Red ribbon around the card and popped on a retired Basic Grey Corduroy button to finish it off. 
I am entering this into the Stamping 411 sketch challenge which closes soon, so head over and have a go... 
Thanks for dropping by!
Happy Stamping! :)
