Rock On

I purchased the Cover Plate: Circles  in  my last order and I was anxious to try it out. Here is one of several cards I made using this cutting plate. Nichole Heady's card (here) using Boy Basics: Simple Circles inspired my card today.

Enchanted Evening card stock was cut with the Cover Plate: Circles to 
create the frame for the stamped circles. A variety of Simple Circles were
stamped onto Rustic White circles before they were organized into the 
openings of the cover plate. (I also used one of the patterned stamps from Half 
and Half to create the Simply Chartreuse circles and Dot Spot for the dark blue circles)

The sentiment panel was made from one of the Half and Half dies, stamped with images and a sentiment from Boy Basics: Rock On. The guitar was die cut, stamped with Outdoor Denim ink, impressed with the Wood grain Impression Plate and then added to the panel with foam dots. 
The word ROCK was filled in with a red marker.

I'm planning to use this card for Father's Day, so I finished the interior with another sentiment from the Rock On, along with a few stars from Star Prints. The word HERO was also coloured with a red marker.
