Here Come The Boys - Wheely Nice! And a Fascinating Friday Feature


We interrupt this program of seasonal cards 
to bring you a Birthday Card!
I have had fall on the brain, 
and I am sure I will be back at it as
time permits, but I had to squeeze in
a birthday card for a challenge site
I stumbled upon called 
 My very very
good friend's son is turning 16
soon. She was just a few months
along in her pregnancy when 
my husband and I got married!
Hard to believe he will be turning 16!
The challenge is to create a project with Wheels!
How appropriate for a 16 year old young man!
I had fun with this one as I started and completed the entire thing
from my scrap box! Just mixing and matching layers.
(Since I couldn't add a button or ribbon)
I used the PTI Background Basics: Diamonds background
to create my own patterned paper using Aqua Mist ink
on a Whisper White Card Stock scrap. I wanted a retro feel
so I used my copics to only color in a portion of the car.
I shaded the windshield a very light blue for a
glass like appearance.
I used PTI By The Numbers die to cut out the 16
from some zig zag patterned paper I found in
my stash. I finished the card off with
a Happy Birthday sentiment!
Happy to play along with Jules Snippet Challenge
as everything even the card base was created from 
my scrap box.
I have another wonderful and uber talented designer to share 
with you on this Fantastic Friday over on the Paperie Designs Studio Blog!
It's Dana Seymour of Kismet, Art and Life
Please head over to Paperie Designs Studio to learn 
more about this Fascinating Artist!
Hope you have a wonderful Friday!

It's PERFECT for someone who is about to drive! The car is so fun, and I love the big, bold 16 die cuts.

Hard to believe how 16 years goes by, isn't it? Hugs!
