Car Mad

Good Evening Crafty Friends and Followers

Well now the festive season is over I am back to visiting Leeds again.  Arrived here this morning and whew what a busy day.  Journey across was typical as everyone is back to work now.  Lovely to see Mike and Ian again and catch up.

Today's card is a male birthday card.  Most of my male family members are car mad so I am sure one of them will recieve this sometime this year.

8 x 8 Gold Pearlscent Card
1st layer is black card
I have stamped IndigoBlu Map Background using Flitterglu and  Gilding flakes then cut out into 4 squares and matted onto gold pearlescent card.
The topper is from Kraftyhands Motor Mania die cuts matted onto black card cut out using Spellbinder scalloped die.
To finish off I have wrapped Baker's twine around and tied in a knot and added the sentiment.

Below is a close up of the Map Background

I followed the Sketch from Here Comes the Boys Challenge

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx

Linda, you use pearl CS and shiny papers better than anyone else I know. I don't know how you manage to photograph them as well as you do, either! Great guy card and I love the design. Wonderful use of the map.
