Birthday Card



It's our nephew's birthday early next week so this is the card that I've made him. He has recently got back from his World Trip to take up his place at Exeter Uni to do his Masters Degree.



Sorry for the photo - I had to take it last night in less than ideal conditions & I'm not reknowned for my clever photography at the best of times! LOL



The image I used is the Surfing Chevy from Cornish Heritage Farms which I coloured with Copic's & used one of the charms that I bought in Australia ages ago. I again used an old map as a background paper, which I inked the edges of & used my nestibilities for the red mat base.

Thanks Mel - I like to try & personalise when possible :-)

The car image was from blog candy that I won back in May - I won 2 car images, pics on my blog if you want to see the other.
