You Passed!

Hello and Welcome.  I hope you are having a good day.

When I got back from Blackpool recently the first news I got from my hubby was that a friend had passed his driving test  first time ..... Well Done Mark!

So this is the card I made for him using my Cuttlebug for embossing and die cutting.

The silver embossed panel was already lying on my desk.  I used a sentiment banner which is my new set from Elizabeth crafts.   I stencilled the 'L' onto a scrap of white card and cut up the middle with fancy scissors.  I think it would have looked better cut at an angle but wanted to get the card finished quickly to deliver.

I cut the car and letters from Tim Holtz dies with scraps of card and decided to colour the holes in the letters with a silver pen to match the panel.

As I used lots of snippets I'm popping over to join in at Pixies Snippets Playground Weeks 307 & 308

I would also like to enter the following challenges  Lemon Shortbread Challenge #52   and
Cuttlebug Mania (a masculine project)
