Rockin' Rupert

There's just something about a guy with a guitar...how true that is! And for Rupert there is no excepetion to that...well other than he is a dragon there isn't...hehe. But he has that certain something too...jammin' away in this Rupert Plays Rock stamp from Stamping Dragon Designs. I saw this stamp and couldn't resist! And I knew I had the perfect sentiment to go with it from Ginger's House! It was a match made in stamper's heaven...ahhh! I love it when a plan come together...haha! The paper I used for this card was from the Cafe Pigalle Cardmaking Pack also available at SDD. I only used one of the papers for my background but blocked it out and turned the stripes in different directions to give it some interest. I love using this method! And the scalloped square behind Rupert is another paper from same said collection. Very pretty colors! You should really check it out! There are several other papers I didn't use and also elements in the pack. This collection could be used for scrapbooking just as easily if one would be so inclined. 
I used my Prismacolor pencils with OMS method to color Rupert and his awesome guitar in. Added some linen thread from Stampin' Up and some star brads from Joann Fabric's and he was ready to roll (Rock and Roll that is)hehe. 
This card is my DT card for Challenge #2. The info for this challenge is included below. As always, thanks for stopping by and until next time...take care.
