Inspired by a Song at An Oldie But Goodie

Good morning.

Today I'm here to share my DT card for 

and this fortnight the lovely Laurie has picked the theme


My friend recently asked me to make a card for her nephew who will be 17 this week and she wanted something arty with a car image as he is now old enough to have driving lessons.
This is what I came up with and the great news is she loved it - let's hope the recipient loves it too :o)

My card was inspired by the song - Little Red Corvette - Prince
Everything I have used is 6 months or more old.

Card Ingredients:
Image: Kenny K 'Need for Speed'
Colouring Medium: Copics
Design Papers: My Mind's Eye 'On the Bright Side - One' - MCH
Card Candi coloured with Copic s
Sentiments: Kaisercraft Rub-Ons and Stamp
I added a touch of Glossy Accents to the lights :o)

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the awesome inspiration from my lovely DT buddies.

Digi Sketch Challenge - Sketch and/or For the Boys
TPE - Masculine Birthday

Just a quick post from me today as I need to get ready to go to the hospital for an ultrasound scan on my elbow - those that are regular readers of my blog will know that I recently had an MRI scan but unfortunately they weren't able to get any decent images for the consultant to see what the problem is - so here I go again for another scan :o(
Wish me luck :o)

Thanks for your visit today - it's always lovely to see you here.
Have a fabulous day.
