Day 8 of the 30 day Coloring Challenge and A Birthday Card

Happy Monday everyone!! One more week before I am on summer vacation-whoo hoo!!!

My darling husband is in Phoenix on business this week so I have time to play in my craft room this week. Whether or not I have mojo, that is another story. The good thing about him being away is that Charlotte and I are on our own for dinners. It makes it so much easier! (I really don't know why I am even complaining-Chris cooks dinner most of the time anyway. Char and I like a lot of the same things, though and will eat more vegetarian then Chris will.)

Today I am sharing a card I created using Paper Trey Ink's "Enjoy the Ride" stamp set and die. My nephew turned sixteen a couple weeks ago but we did not celebrate it until last night. I am never on time with my cards anyway so he got my card late. I am entering this into day 8 of The Daily Marker's 30 day coloring challenge. I have been coloring a little every day, even if it is inking!!! (that counts, right?)

The first thing I did for this card was die cut and stamp the car out of green card stock. I then stamped the car again in white and cut out the bumpers. Next I colored the bumpers and some of the car details in with a silver Prismacolor pencil. It does not show up here that well and I apologize.

I set this aside and created the background. I used Memento Tuxedo Black for the bottom and a mix of Stormy Sky and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks for the sky. I then stamped the sentiment on top and added in white "stars" with a white gel pen.

I die cut a white circle and mounted it in the middle of the card. I then used foam adhesive to adhere the card. My last step was to add the number stickers and some yellow Stickles for the headlights.

This was an extremely simple card but fun to make!!!

Again, I am adding this to the 30 day Coloring Challenge.

I thank you for stopping by!! Have a great night!!
