Drummer birthday card

My baby becomes a teenager today, where have all the years gone!! Here is the card I made for his grandparents to give him.

I have used a 8x8in white card and covered it with red card. I have embossed white card with an Embossalicious folder. I have highlighted the detail with gilding wax. I have used an image from a Hunky Dory little book. I have cut the 13 in tan card and red card using Marianne dies. I offset them when sticking them together. I stuck them to a scalloped circle, cut using an Xcut die. I have printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with a Presscut oval die  and die cut the next size in tan to layer the sentiment.
