Birthday Car

I've been trying to make some more masculine cards for my card supply so I decided to do a birthday one since those are the ones I need most. I didn't really mean for the image to look like Lightening McQueen but I guess the new Cars movie has been on my mind since my son brings it up daily, so that's what ended up on the card :)

I tied waxy flax around the card a couple of times, because it looked a little more masculine to me than ribbon. Then I used my Sew Easy and punched some holes so I could sew the zig zag - I thought it mirrored the embossed paper really well too!

Challenges that inspired me:
My Craft Spot - tie one on
Birthday Sundaes - anything goes
The Paper Variety - for or about a special man in your life
Papercraft Star - follow sketch and masculine card
Card Makin' Mamas - use your scraps
Designed to Delight - masculine, no flowers

Have a great day!
