Birthday Boy

This is the second card that I have made for my neighbour who has asked me to make a card for her forty something son who lives in France.  I decided to give her a choice so this one has cars on it as she suggested and the one I made earlier in the week had a dog on it.

The image is from Joanna Sheen's Nostalgia CD, the papers are from an American Traditional Designs Card stock Bundle and the sentiment was cut from a backing paper from the Polka Doodles Not For Girls CD.  The card cannot be heavily embellished as it has to go in the post. to France so I just added a couple of corners cut from the Core'dinations cards stock that I used to layer the papers and image and some co-ordinating brown Core'dinations.

I have decorated the inside of the card

I do hope my neighbour likes one of them.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Lollipop Crafts Challenge 63 - No embellishments
Truly Scrumptious Challenge 72 - Something Forgotten - My Nostalgia CD
