Happy birthday Hubby!

Hello friends; I hope you've had a great day so far.  

It was my hubby's birthday earlier in the week and this was the card I made for him.  He doesn't really 'do' cards (I know, can you believe it!) but I thought this would be perfect for him as he is car mad.   

I began by stamping the 3 cars with memento tuxedo black ink and coloured them with Promarkers.  I thought the background was too plain so added some 'splatter' with stamps in matching ink colours and I was much happier.  The husband sentiment was stamped in Versafine onyx black ink and the strip sentiment was a pre-made one that I die cut with a sentiment strip die.   

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Allsorts challenge - create your own background
Seize the birthday - I didn't use the topping so just went for anything birthday goes

I know my posts have been a bit sporadic the last year or so but (without promising anything) I hope I can try and get back into the swing of blogging, even if it's just once a week.  We'll see how that goes lol!  I really do appreciate you still following my blog and hopefully you will continue to stick with me.  

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful weekend.

Card ingredients:

Honey Bee Stamps - car show
Gina K Designs - grand gentlemen sentiment set

Creative  Expressions - wordies sentiment sheets - birthday
Gina K Designs - ink pads for background (I used soft stone, red velvet and blue raspberry)
