Sweet Sixteen

I have the sweetest husband.  Let me explain:  I make cards for the fun of it -- it's a hobby, pure and simple.  It makes me happy.  Making cards relieves stress - and most of my family appreciate them . . . at least I think they do :)

So that being said -- back to the sweet husband. . .  After I made this card, I realized the balloons and the car were waaayyyy out of proportion.  My darling hubby took one look at it, and said, "It's supposed to be that way.  It's a cartoon."  I love that man!

This is for niece #5 's sixteenth birthday.  She will be taking her road test soon.

I used the same technique as the Engagement Card card I made for my son.  You'll recognize the hill and cloud.  The car is from PaperTrey ink.  I am not sure where the sentiment stamp is from.  

I used the colors from Color Me Scrappy.  I hope you can see that the paper I used for the hillside does indeed have lines in it, as per the challenge.

I used the sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch , with a few liberties.

That's it for today.  I am thrilled to have gotten some crafting in -- it's been a while.  I hope you are enjoying the end of summer.
