"You Rock" Inky Style

Good Sunday morning everyone, today is my first inspirational post for Inky Impressions and I have a fun card to share with you.  I used non other than Mr. "Rock N' Roll Donnie", he is just too cute ;o)  My DD said he was the cutest and that she wanted her birthday card made with this image.  
First off, the Inky Challenge Blog posted a new challenge on Wednesday, "Dress To Impress", so guess what, I dressed up my card pretty good, flowers, lots of layering and bling. 
I stamped the image twice on Wausau paper and colored with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS, I cut the base image with a circle die from Spellbinders, the second image I cut with scissors and adhered with pop dots.
The little tags I cut with a die from Cuttlebug and applied some rub-ons to make the sentiment.  I layered a couple of flowers, adhered a button and on top of it I adhered an adhesive black rhinestone.  I also attached the little guitar charm which is available at the Inky store here.  Oh, and don't forget some final touches with some black rhinestones.
My inspiration for the layout of my card was this sketch challenge over at Splitcoaststampers.
Thank you so much for visiting today and have a great day.
