BC301: Happy Birthday Scooter

Today over at Blogger's Challenge our theme is Birthdays.  I never seem to have enough birthday cards, and especially not masculine birthday cards.  I really should work up my stash one of these days.

I love how this card came together.  I did a lot of paper piecing with the scooter and then colored the rest with my copics.  This paper from My Mind's Eye is the perfect paper for creating birthday cards.

Hope to see your creation over at Blogger's Challenge today.
Card details:
Stamps: Scootin' By from Sweet Stamp Shop
Cardstock: Real Red, Basic Black from Stampin'Up, Gina K. Luxury White; Patterned Paper: Hootenanny Collection from My Mind's Eye
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, copics C1, C4, B23, B24, R29, YG00
Embellishments: Dimensionals from Stampin'Up!, KaiserCraft Silly Season Jewels

I whipped up a quick card to share as well (not birthday related) using a few challenges.  This card came together pretty fast and I love when I can do that!

I used the current color combination at The Play Date Cafe (black, white & splash of green) along with the Paper Player's Challenge (sketch).

The sentiment stamp is a limited edition stamp I received this week from Clear & Simple Stamps, perfect for Thank you cards.
