Need for Speed Birthday Wishes - The Paper Players 119

What a miserable weekend we have had - rain, rain, and more rain - and today it`s about to get worse.  I`m sure all of you have been following the path of Hurricane Sandy, which is expected to merge with the cold front coming from the north and become a ``Frankenstorm``.  Today the rain is expected to get heavier, with wind gusts up to 70 km per hour, and this is to be sustained for 24 hours at least.  Not a day to be travelling that`s for sure.  I just hope the power doesn`t go out!

For the challenge with the Paper Players here  I decided to make a masculine birthday card.  At all the craft shows I have done this season, the most frequent request has been for masculine birthday cards and my supply is running low.

 

Technique:  The Cajun Craze cardstock base is layered with Sahara Sand cardstock which was embossed with the Houndstooth Folder and the edges sponged with Cajun Craze ink.
The strip of designer paper is from Comfort Cafe.  Scalloped edges of Cajun Craze was attached to the top and bottom edges of this paper.
The banner is Cajun Craze card stock.
Image: The All Terrain Vehicle was stamped with Midnight Muse ink on Very Vanilla card stock.  It was die cut using the Labels Framelit and the edges sponged with Cajun Craze ink.  It was attached to the banner using dimensionals.

Stamps: Need for Speed, Petite Pairs
Inks: Midnight Muse, Cajun Craze
Papers: Cajun Craze, Very Vanilla, River Rock, Comfort Cafe DSP
Accessories: Houndstooth folder, Labels framelit, Scallop border punch, dimensionals.
