The Dreaded Masculine Card!!!

 My grandson's birthday was coming up (Birthday Alarm sends me notices 10 days and 2 days ahead) I was racking or is it wracking? my brain as he is in his 20s and I've pretty well exausted my ideas for him, he doesn't drive or have any interest in sports so pretty limited  to what I can come up with but with an idea for a card in my mind I was good to go until his Mom said they went to a music store and he spotted a set of previously owned drums, a lot of thinking and talking and quizzing the clerk (who believe it or not) is my  brother from another mother, how awesome is that, he bought the set of drums and immediately I remembered a digis from years ago from Stitchy Bear of a whole set of B&W musical instruments and voila a card was born. 

5 1/2 inch square card I cut the circles with Elizabeth Craft Designs stitched circles, The silver I used I bought from Dollarama and is adhesive but doesn't cut sentiments, you get the backing but not the metallic. so I will use it up by peeling and sticking to cardstock.  I would have liked to stamp a music background on all that white space but the music stamp is meant for an A2 card. 

The sentiment is from the same grouping of digis from Stitchy Bear AND was stamped with some very small rubber stamps on a wooden sticks I bought at Dollarama  Since I cut a circle extra I had to use it on the inside. 

I'm entering this in:

When I saw the inside sentiment, you got me thinking... I do believe I have this digi set as well! Inside and outside both look great, what a perfect and personalized card. Thanks for joining us at Seize the Birthday and Inkspirational!
