Vroom---------- 18 year old card

Another request, for an 18 year old who has damaged 3 cars, I was told to include a car! not sure if this was a message for him?

 I followed this sketch, I think it makes it so much easier for a quick card, or otherwise really :). I didn't follow the colour scheme as you can see, that was already decided with the image I chose.  
I chose a digi stamp by Charmed Cards and Crafts named Driving Mikey, it turns out that the image looks like the boy it's for, how fortunate I thought LOL the image is ready coloured or you can do it yourself, this time because of the time frame I used the ready coloured.

The papers are by Gina Jane at DAISIE.  I looked for a font that made the word Vroom look like it was speeding through and found this called Speed of Oatmeal. I cut out the Vroom on my Cricut with Fairycuts, A border of cars was needed, why? just did! Anyway, I looked on the web for a car and found one, so I then made it into a border with Fairycuts. The tag is a freebie from DAISIE I've had for years I then used jute twine to tie a couple of knots.

Not really a quick card with all I made to cut, but I think it was worth it, in fact someone else who saw it wanted the same so it was not a one off as my cards are usually.

I'm going to add this to the following challenges -

Wonderful details from the teenage boy to the row of cars and even the VROOM! I agree. It's fantastic!

Lovely card, Faith! I never think of using the pre-coloured images ... very clever when you've already outdone your time on the layout.

Thank you too for stopping by my blog, to comment upon my Thanks Sew Much card. I too use Fairy Cut, in fact, I think I was among the first in the states to endorse it for use with the Cricut. I've not updated it, so I do have the capability to continue to use it with my Cricut, though now that I have my Silhouette Cameo, I can keep both machines humming at the same time.

Have a blessed day!

Great job on this one too Faith! I think your Vroom letters are wonderful, and I like the way you tied the sentiment.
