Lucky Girl

Picture 010
This card was made for a very lucky girl who was given a yellow Ka car for her 17th birthday!
The background paper  is my own design, just lines of multicoloured Happy Birthdays.
I  printed the picture of the car several times and made very simple decoupage layers of the body and lights. 
The registration plate was also made on the computer then cut out and matted on silver card. 
The birthday greetings are made using yellow embossed tape on an old Dymo tape writer and the L plates are table confetti, matted on silver again. The card is topped off with a bow saved from Christmas packaging and would you believe it…….. a few red flat backed gems!

Dymo tape makes a brilliant and different sort of “Greetings” embellishment , I especially like them on men’s cards.

this is a great card - i was once asked to do a yellow labourgini (i don't think I've spelt that right)for a 50th birthday!!! It's amazing how resourcefukl we can be when the images are not readily available - great card and very lucky girl - for more that one reason!!
