The sketch this week for The Paper Players inspired me to make this card for my husband's son who is celebrating his birthday the end of this week.
He rides a motorcycle so I thought the circle cut from Going Places would be the thing to use for the center of the sketch. And I HAD to use Harley Davidson colors. :)
I tried something new on this card, too. Sewing. I always wanted to do some but hesitated to use my good machine on paper. What can it hurt? It's the needle that takes the beating so I'll save a needle just for paper. The stitching doesn't show up much on the black in the picture but it's there. Next time I'll do a closer zigzag stitch but it's not bad for my first try.
The sentiment was stamped with VersaMark and embossed with white and the circle was popped up. I even used the negative (positive?) cut on the inside of the card.
I'm also entering this in the Happy Birthday challenge at Celebrate the Occasion.
