Mini birthday

Just a quick post because I'm running late!!

Today I'm sharing the card I have made for HB's birthday the other day... OK, I'm going to fess up and say that

I had been putting off making it, because I HATE making cards for men, 
I'd been getting all creative with my DT cards, and it kinda got waylaid
the wotsit didn't spend enough time in the garage at the weekend and I kept having to hide it (not easy when you are tying to get glossy accents to dry!)

Anyway, it ended up quite plain and simple, but it was personal as it had an approximation of his Mini on it (he did spot that I had left the lenses clear as he has on the real thing, and he liked it :-D



Supplies: Papermania Kraft card blank; Kraft CS; Bazzill Dotty CS; Scrapbook Sisters Car 5 image; saddle stitched ribbon; Ladybug Crafts Ink sentiment

I'd like to enter this card into these challenges please
The Crazy Challenge - Movie (The Italian Job)
Fingers crossed I'll have something to share tomorrow, hope you have a great day
