Classic Birthday Wishes!

Hi there, today I'd like to share a card idea using a couple of the older sets - the Classic Cars Set 599 along with a sentiment from the Wetlands 1 Set 790.
I stamped the car in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored using three Copics. I then cut it out using the Memory Box Cross Stitched Borders die. Before removing the die, I sponged on a little Summer Sky and London Fog. The other layers behind were cut from designer paper and a blue cardstock using the same stitched borders die. I cut out the Spellbinders Ribbon Banner from the middle of the piece of blue cardstock. 
The sentiment was stamped in Versamark and then heat set with Cerulean embossing powder and was popped up under the image with Mounting Foam.
I wanted to add just a little pizzazz! So I took three diamond pop dots and colored the sides with two of the Copics that I had used in the image. The blue is B34. I then took off one of the protective backings and applied it with Cobalt Glaze Velvet Glitter. 
Then I did the same with Copic Marker E31 and Golden Wheat Velvet Glitter.
The other protective backing was peeled off and then the diamonds were stuck to the top of the image.
That finished up my card for today. Today I'd like to join in the following two challenges:
Scrapyland Challenge 69: Anything goes using die brands that Scrapyland sells.

Crafty Gals Corner Challenge 131: Do it for the Dudes

Here is a list of the supplies used from the Sparkle N Sprinkle store:
Cobalt Glaze (GM2015), Golden Wheat (GM2026)


  1. I love this. Great guy card and a great layout. I love the layers you added and especially all that plaid. And, that is a super cool car image and sentiment too! The glitter on the sentiment is just the right touch to make it an even more classic look!

  2. Fabulous card, Shona! I love your little bit of pizzazz. Wonderfil coloring, too.
    FYI - They cancelled the Edison show due to some mixup with the venue.
