BMX Birthday

It's my flatmate's birthday next weekend...and today's card is for him. He races BMX bikes...despite the fact he's old enough to know better! lol...so I had a little search for a suitable digi image, and found 'Bike Kid' by Kenny K. I coloured it using watercolour pencils...then used co-ordinating colours of card for the background. I embossed the card using my Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots', 'Diamond Plate' and 'Stars' folders, and Craft Concepts 'Hexagon Illusion' folder. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Sending Sunshine' set by Simon Says Stamp, and the brads are BasicGrey.
