You've passed!

Hello again friends; I hope you've had a great start to the week.  Hubby had his clips out today, which thankfully was quick and painless.  Apart from an allergic reaction to the plasters covering them, his wounds look fab and have healed really well.  Physio on Thursday, although not sure what they will tell him to do as he is walking around the house and up and down the stairs without too much trouble.  

I'm here today to share a card that I made for my son's work colleague who's daughter had passed her driving test.  I have to be honest I don't make many cards for this occasion so had to search through my stash for a 'you've passed' sentiment but eventually found one in my trusty Clearly Besotted oldies.  I'm never de-stashing my CBS stamp sets as they are so useful and I find myself reaching for them often.  

Here is my card:

and a closer look:

CAS decoration on the inside:

I began by die cutting the cute car from grey card and cut the additional pieces in mostly black, except for the hubcaps which I cut from silver card.  The cute dog was stamped and coloured with Promarkers and I fussy cut him out.  I glued the dog behind the car so that it looked like it was inside.  I put the car to one side and worked on my background.  I cut a piece of light blue card and added a strip of grey card to bottom and used my white gel pen to draw a faux road and at the top of the blue panel I added some white die cut clouds.  The L plate was created by die cutting a letter L from red card and adhering it to a white square.  I then took a torn edge die and cut the white square in half to look like it was ripped apart.  To assemble my card I added the car with foam squares along the 'road' and added the L plate below, also with foam squares.  The clouds and sentiments were attached with liquid glue.  The panel was added onto a white card base with foam tape; this was then matted onto a black panel.  I think the finished card turned out quite cute.  

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

Allsorts challenge - all creatures great and small
Try It On Tuesday challenge - sing a song (inspired by Madness 'driving in my car)
Cut It Up challenge - create a scene
Tic Tac Toe challenge - die cuts/free/alphabet (I die cut a letter L for my L plate)

Thanks for stopping by today; I hope you enjoy the rest of your afternoon/evening.  I appreciate you taking the time to comment and for all the love you leave for my little works of art.  

Love and hugs,
