Born to Be Wild

Get your motor running....head out on the highway.....lookin' for adventure...

I've had that song in my head since I started coloring up this fabulous image called Born to Ride from Karen's Doodles, lol.  Don't chase me down if it's stuck in yours now, too, lol!

Our friend's birthday is this week and he's a biker dude.  Naturally, I thought of this image that I won over a year ago and have not been able to use.  I think it's quite perfect for him!

Sadly, Card Positioning Systems *CPS* is having their last challenge and  it's a fun one.  You get to pick your favorite sketch to use as inspiration.  I went with Sketch #45 for mine and here it is:

And here is my card using that sketch flipped:

Now you'll have to forgive me because the map and roadsign dp was in my stash and I have no idea who it is by.  However, what was cool about those papers were those little license plates were on a coordinating piece of paper.  I fussy cut them out of the paper, and adhered them to a thicker piece of cardstock to make a more durable embellie!  He and his bike are decked out in Copics, but his bike got a good wax with some Glossy Accents :)  I also used some of my DCWV The Linen Closet cardstock stack.  Everything has been distressed with Making Memories black ink!

Hope you have a great day today!!  I'm off to try and rid this song outta my head!

  6. See, Sara, I told you that you had something in your stash!!! My stash is like that, too. I forget the papers I have that I didn't think I'd ever use, then come across them at some point, and go "that's just what I need!" Maybe that's why I hoard it all. LOL. Anyway, the paper is perfect with this image and I love how you made the license plate embellies from the coordinating paper.

  7. A beautiful card, a great design and wonderful colors.
