Have an AWESOME Birthday!


Happy Friday my friends.  I am posting a card for a few challenges today;  the F4A challenge at Splitcoast; Seize the Birthday Challenge, Simon Says- Anything Goes and the Birthday Card Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.  
I just got a new mask from The Crafter's Workshop and created the bkg for my card by sponging on Distress inks in yellow and orange (Squeezed Lemonade/ Ripe Persimmons).  The chevrons reminded me of arrows so I stamped the front bicycle wheel just under that so it looks as though the arrow is pointing at the wheel in the air.  I sponged on some white Distress Paint (Picket Fence) over a piece of drywall tape for interest.  I added scoring lines with my Scorbug on either side.
My card was inspired by Dini Kowal...thanks Dini!

Thanks so much for all your kind comments and email....so very appreciated!!

Supplies:  stamps; Flonz Stamps, WPlus9/ Distress inks and paint/ Scorbug/ drywall tape/ mask The Crafter's Workshop
