Happy birthday card for a guitarist

This was a commissioned card for a son's 60th birthday - he is a keen guitarist, both classical and electric guitar, so I used digital images of both layered on top of the silhouette, added to the the sheet music. This was printed, layered on to mirror card and on to the Kanban sentiment background card with wooden corner pieces added.

This is for:
