Juke Box Birthday.....

It's not only Rememberance Day today ( I have to say I had a tear or two in my eye at 11am), it's my brother Andrew's birthday. My brother's always been musical, teaching himself to play keyboards and guitar and he was an enormous Queen fan. He gigs with my nephew David (his card also had a musical theme-a few posts back) at one of his local pubs, so when I saw this FAB juke box I knew I wanted to use it on his card. I used a pop-up stepper for the base, then covered the base front entirely with black card (re-doing the cuts and scores) Holographic card was used for the panels. They were all adhered with foam tape. The juke box was cut from several different colours of mirror card the assembled with PVA, and foam pads to some parts. The completed juke box was adhered to the front panel with foam pads. 45rpm 'vinyl' records were cut from black watermarked mirri with coloured mirri labels, 'Happy Birthday' was cut from gold mirri with black shadow, and 'Andrew' was cut from red mirri with black shadow. The words 'gig' & 'band' and a smattering of black mirricard notes complete the card.
