Rock and Rollin Jukebox Card

Here's the quickest card I've made in a while.  Luckily I already had the layout on my mat to cut out on my Silhouette using SVGcuts.com Rock & Rollin Collection /Jukebox Card which can be found here.  It took me from selecting the papers to finish, about a couple hours. The finished card is 5" x 7".....I thought it is a bit large but actually it's an OK size. If I had to do over again I would make the silhouette girl a bit taller.  Don't you love her "saddle shoes". She is from the same collection but from the Party Card-33 file. Personalized name on the card is made with my SCAL computer program using Impact font cut at .75 twice to make a contrast shadow. All the pieces have been sponged with SU Chocolate Chip. Accents are using a fine tip black pen. Michael's Kraft paper is used for the card base, then stamped with a wood grain background stamp from Hero Arts using SU Chocolate Chip ink. Only some parts of the jukebox are popped with dimensionals.
Here's a closer detail of the letters: A red copic pen was used for the buttons and a fine black pen used for the record names (swiggly). I had litghtly penciled the lines so I could get the buttons straight but it looked so good, I decided not to erase them.
Card inside: a simple note (part of the collection) and stamped message (from SU On Your Birthday set)
Now are you ready to see MY VERY OWN jukebox? Isn't it so cool?  Lights and those water bubbles and everything!!!! Not an original Wurlitzer but it does play actual 45 rpm records (what's that?) OMG - yes, I still have my favorite records from so very long ago. And it has been 25 years since I got this jukebox!. It sits in our favorite spot in the family room. SVGcuts.com did such a fabulous job making this cut file. AND, there's a jukebox "box", too that is part of theis Rock and Rollin SVG collection so you can position a tea light inside so it will light up!!!!
It was a last minute request to make this card but was still fun to make. I was amazed I was able to put it together in a real hurry........................hope you all enjoyed it and have a great crafting day.
