Happy 50th...

A friends 50th Birthday was recently so a card was needed, in fact I think I may be doing a lot more of these sorts of cards over the next few years lol.

This card needed a motorcycle, not just any motorcycle - but a Harley!
These bikes are just gorgeous to ride on, I haven't been on one too often but I love it when I have had the opportunity.

Love this glimmery designer papers, its from a DCWV insta stack, they are such cute paper stacks in a variety of colours.

TIP: I used a silver sharpie that you can pick up from an art/craft store, I Used that
to colour in the motorcycle then highlighted the metal with the white signo gel pen.

Stamp:  Motorcycle (retired Stampin' Up!)
Papers: DCWV insta stack
Cardstock: Whisper white and Basic Black (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Black Stazon
Pen: Silver (sharpie), white gel pen
Dies: Technique Tuesday Happy Birthday, Numbers (SU)
Other: enamel dots (SU)

L's and P's

In my part of the world being South Australia, we have "L" plates in yellow and black, and "P" plates in red and white.

I have a niece who is a couple of weeks shy of getting her learners permit (eek) so thought this weeks mojo challenge sketch was super perfect for a card idea for in readiness for her getting her license.

I love how they turned out and that they are a sort of matching pair for her to keep.
Now to just get over the fact that she will be old enough to drive :(  and I should be right lol.

Have a great week everyone.

I was asked recently to make a special Christening card for a soon to be Godmother.

Something special, so pink was definitely in order for the little girl being Christened.

and a close up of all the pretty details:

I don't make too many of these cards so was a novelty to create one.
The stamp set is one from Stampin' Up!
The papers, embossing folders and ribbon is also Stampin' Up!
The fancy die cut shapes are nestabilities.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
