Birthday Record Player

I made a birthday card for my amazing son-in-law who LOVES vinyl and record players...
This amazing die is from My Favorite Things...such a funnnnnnnn die...and I LOVE it!!   I used watercolor paper and sponged distress oxide ink and then splattered water on it, to make a cool looking record.  My daughter was showing me some of the vinyl records that Nic owns, and he has some that are wildly colored, so I thought this would be cool!  I used some wood veneer paper (old paper from Simon, but no longer available) for the player and silver cardstock for the knobs and needle.  I stamped Happy Birthday sentiment on vellum for the center piece...ok, not perfect, but had to bend the stamp a bit to get is rounded, so it wasn't perfect (believe me, I tried and tried, and tried).  This was sooooo much fun!!!  Here's a close up...
Hope you are having a great start to your week...PEACE!! 
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
