40th Birthday

Today's card is the one I've made for my brother's birthday...it's not until next Friday, but he's not likely to see it on here. He likes cars, so I picked a Penny Black image (from the 'Hello Friend' set) of a pup driving a sports car. I stamped it on to watercolour paper, coloured it using watercolour pencils, then carefully cut it out. I used snippets of coloured card, to create a country road scene for him to drive through...cutting a grassy verge using one of my Die-namics 'Grassy Edge' dies, and adding a white line down the centre of the road using a white gel pen. I made a '40' speed limit sign using more snippets of card, and some Nesties, adding the numbers using stamps from the 'Birthday Bears' set (also by Penny Black). The clouds were cut using my Memory Box 'Puffy Clouds' dies, and the sentiment is from the 'Anytime Messages' set by Hero Arts.
