Scooter Birthday

Today I'm playing along with the sketch on Card Positioning System and Taylored Expressions is sponsoring the sketch this week! Hopefully you'll find a little time to play along for a chance to win a fabulous prize from the TE Store...just don't forget to link your creation on the CPS blog.

I have a few fall birthdays to make cards for so I pulled out my In The Kitchen Project Pantry and paired it with Feelin' Groovy. I just love the retro images in this set!!! I stamped the scooter with Memento Tuxedo Black and paper pieced the blue part. I coloured the rest with copic markers and added sparkle with an orange Spica glitter pen and some orange Tiny Twinkles.

I used my awesome scalloped eyelet border die on the orange layer then added more Tiny Twinkles inside each circle...the perfect amount of sparkle IMHO. The coordinating green ribbon is from the In The Kitchen Project Pantry and I topped it with a stamped flower. I really love the fall feel of this card...and it's groovy and cool at the same time!  :-)

Don't forget the 12 Days of a Handcrafted Christmas continues over on Taylor's Blog. Can you believe the amazing ideas she's come up with?!? You definitely must check it out if you aren't already following along.

Thanks for stopping by!
