My eldest son passed his driving test last week and this is the card that I made for him.

We all went out for a lovely meal on Tuesday to celebrate, we are so proud of him, he is only seventeen and has kept up the family tradition of passing first time.

I saw the idea for the sentiment on Agnieszka's blog, the papers are from My Mind's Eye - I'm down to scraps now so I'm not sure which collection they are from.  I used two different papers, cut along the chevrons and matched them up.  The black card stock is from my stash and I computer generated the 'L' along with the sentiment.

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