Hit the Road and Celebrate!

Here's my second card with this new stamp set!  I was inspired by the colors of my son's clothes this morning!  Bright blue and yellow and light gray.  I used Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, Sahara Sand and white.  I never used to like Sahara Sand, but it is becoming one of my go-to-colors!

This is for the challenge at Twisted Tuesday.  To use something clear.  You might not be able to tell from the picture, but the car is embossed with clear embossing powder.  The challenge was also to use some favorites.  I used one of my favorite embossing folders (houndsooth), mini brads which are my newly discovered favorite embellishment, and Baker's Twine.  It's always a favorite to use NEW stuff and I got this stamp set yesterday!

I wanted to make a versatile guy card.  I thought this could be for birthday, grad, or other special occasions.  It's definitely a fun and versatile stamp set.

I used my ticket corner punch on the corners and brads in each corner.  I used my scoring tool on the yellow banner.  The sentiment is colored in black and blue.
