Creative Card Crew Challenge 9 - Guest Designer card

The theme this week with the Creative Card Crew has been set by the lovely Linda and she says "Everyone Emboss" so do stop by and view all the lovely creations made by the Design Team and join in and have some fun.

I used a stencil by Joy for the corners - a little bit of embossing, cutting and pricking onto pearlescent card . I did not stitch as I normally would because I reckon my soon to be 16 year old grandson would not appreciate this. He is the best birthday present any grandma could ask for, same day as me!!! Swiss dots folder, easy embossing or what! see how simple it is to join in with this challenge, and Mikey has been coloured with my prisma´s.
Pretty sure Ryan will love this cool dude of a guitarist as he too loves his music.
Sorry this is so short and sweet but I am exhausted after spending the day in Gibraltar shopping, and the drive is not the easiest at the best of times, luckily there were no long queues either going in or coming out today.
Reckon we will be eating out tonight or poor hubby will starve lol.

I love the card!! Really nice for a teen guy! I especially like the coloring of the image and the corners.... are they a stencil or a hand punch? I have a few corner punches that do some neat corners
Really nice
