VAROOM......


My husbands young nephew has a birthday coming up soon and this card is for him. He's at that age where he thinks he's too big for a bicycle and of course, he's too young to drive a car! I thought this would be a cute birthday card for him. On the inside it will say : "You have to go to the three-wheeler before you can get the four-wheeler!"

This was a free digi from Wards. The streamers on the handlebars and the banner sentiment is from Our Craft Lounge (Out for a Spin). I don't know who made the patterned paper but for some reason it reminded me of car racing (keep in mind I know NOTHING about car racing though). I also used Real Red, Black, and White. I colored the image with Prismapencils and Bic Markers. The layout is one that was on SCS Card Sketches several weeks ago.
This is for the weekly challenge at Cowgirls Sunday Stampen Challenge.
Thanks for stopping by..............
