Pedal car card

Here is a card I made for a very young man in our family, the embossing folder is a provocraft " Diamonds in the rough", the nesting die is a Couture Creation, "Victorian rectangle", and the pedal car is a free image from "The Graphic Fairy" from some time last year.  The Happy Birthday is from a Fiskars stamp that I have had for a very long while.   I hope our little man will like it, it is the same type of pedal car that I had when I was a small girl.

"The Punter"

I made this card for my husbands friend who is a "punter"  loving the horse races, I used a race form to copy for the background and used Tim Holtz clock that my friend Meg cut out for me, and I used the
Tim Holtz stamp for the "umbrella Man" and the birds on the wire, I stamped the sentiment from a Fiskars stamp that I have had for a long time and used the Couture nested dies for the background to the stamp. I used the silver coin and key from my stash.    I just hope he likes it.

The background on the first one is from a 6 x 6 pad from Papermania and the black and white background is from a 6  x 6 pad from Kaisercraft Black and White Timeless,
