Wheelie Great Birthday

Happy Friday people!  I’m popping in with a card I created for my brother’s birthday which is today. I thought that this awesome image from Power Poppy’s set, Move the Soul worked perfectly for a “young at heart” guy design.  

I pulled out some older designer paper from Authentique called Loyal initially because of the green and blue piece because it almost had the look of gears fitting together, and then I took my colouring cues from that.  

On the blue designer paper piece I added some tire tracks in Not Quite Navy SU ink to accent the background.  

I added some brads, which work here and were fun to use again since I so rarely do anymore.  You can also see that the motorcycle has varying shades of blue green and blue and I like that it gives you that iridescent metallic look.  

Here’s the inside of the design with more motorcycle tracks and the roughed up sentiment.  

Here’s the colours I used.  I know it looks like I used a ton of skin shades, that was just because the first ones I started with looked to peachy to me :), so I kept trying to dull them down a little.  

Here’s my girlfriends playing along today from the Power Poppy Sisterhood....

Christine, this is fabulous! I love this set and really need to make a card with it after seeing this one. I think one of my grandsons would love this! What great DP, and I love how you've used the tracks inside and out, and what a great job coloring! I love it! Hugs!
