Better late than Never!!

I had planned to get birthday cards made and sent on time this year but I have already failed with January!! All cards have been late (and that's because they have to be sent overseas so they need to be made a week earlier), but I'm hoping to get better from here on in!! So it's my friend Jon's birthday today (in Scotland) so I made this card for him!!! He doesn't play the drums but my son chose this stamp when we were at Heaven Scent Crafts shop a couple of weeks ago and I wanted to make a card with it!!
This is the first time I've used a Kenny K stamp, his name is Buggin' Drummer! I used the Sweet Stop Sketch to get me started! I coloured the image in with Tria markers and you can't see it but around the rim of each drum and the drum stands I have coloured them in with glitter pens. I added some crystal effects to his sunglasses and some kindy glitz around the left symbol (cos it needed some bling!!) I'm not sure where the design papers are from but they were perfect for this card!! I've inked around the edge of all papers with Chipped sapphire Distress ink. The sentiment and the little guitar are from Tickled Pink stamps. I then just added a couple of rhinestones for a bit more bling!!
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
* Kenny K's Krafty Girlz - Get your Bling on
