Birthday card for my boy

This was a fun card to make, and I was able to make immediate use of the WRMK Teen Angst papers I bought from TK Maxx just yesterday. What a bargain! The pack included eight die cut, foiled or double sided papers, 6 yards of ribbon and a pack of arrow stamps, all for a pound.
The  '14' was saved from a bought card my DD was given a couple of years ago. The stars were cut with my Craft Robo, and the guitar has been cut with an Ellison die, and then paper pieced. I used black Enamel Accents to add a bit of detail round a star and to make a shiny button on the guitar.

I'm entering this card in to the following challenges:
