Beep! Beep!

My younger brother is getting his driver's license this Fall, providing he pass the test, of course! (Yes, there is a BIG age gap between us). This card is for his birthday, the date on which I 'm sure he'll try to schedule his driving test. Wish him luck!

By Land has proven to be a very well-used set from my collection of stamps. I stamped the car on pale gray cs with Handsome Hunter ink and cut it out. Then I stamped it again in Basic Black and cut out the wheels. The car is popped up on pop-dots and the wheels are attached with gold eyelets. Beep is stamped three times in Basic Black on white scraps and cut and mounted with glue dots. The stoplight is stamped in Basic Black onto the white panel and the lights colored in with pencils blended with mineral spirits. Across the bottom is Close to Cocoa sponging and across the top is Bliss Blue sponging to make earth and sky. The bottom half of the card is a page from a DCWV mat pack and the border of the two halves has a piece of SU vanilla grosgrain ribbon.

Thanks for looking!
