My eldest son's girlfriend passed her driving test earlier this week - well done Gemma.  This is the card that I made to congratulate her.

I saw this fabulous Saturated Canary image quite a while ago and knew that it would be perfect for Gemma.  I coloured her with ProMarkers and used papers from LOTV, the sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.

I added a punched border and some seam binding from my stash.

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

The Crafter's Cafe Challenge 97 - New (New Driving Licence)
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
PDE Linky Party - Celebrations (Passed Driving Test)
Monday Morning Challenge 2 - New Somethings (New Driving Licence)
Shopping Our Stash Challenge 182 - Thrice as Nice (Papers and Seam Binding from stash)

Thank you so much for visiting me today, I always appreciate you taking the time to pop in.
