My first custom order card!

This is my first custom order card and I must say I am more than a tad nervous. I have never sold a card before and am hoping the lady will like this one just fine. It is for her son who is into guitars and music so this is what I came up with. I used the darling little Hanglar stamp.....just love their stamps. The music paper was some I just recently purchased for no particular reason at the time. lol I dug out the old old Sizzix Fun Serif numbers and Sizzix music note dies that I do not think have been out of their box in years. Was good to go back and use some of my old things. The name and Happy Birthday were cut from my expression. With three charms and some stickles, I finished it up. I will email her photos for her approval and hopefully it will be off to Montana! lol

Challenge I am entering.....beside the one of making my first sale! lol
