A 'vroom, vroom' birthday card for Edward

This card is for Edward, whose birthday is on 14th January. I've said previously on here that Edward is Len's great-nephew, and a very special young man:
I wanted something brightly coloured and some recent freebie papers fitted the bill!

I used:

- 6" x 6" square white card stock

- LOTV pre-coloured Cute Squares image

- purpley/blue Core-dinations card

- papers from 'Travel Lite' Memory Keepers paper pack - free with Simply Cards and Papercraft

- sentiment from Elzybells, stamped using Brilliance 'Starlite Black' ink pad

- card candi - in red, amber and green - like traffic lights :)

That's today's offering, and a much shorter post than yesterday's was :))

How cute is the little boy on the card - you sent me one and I used it on a card for a young man too. I'm really missing crafting, but will be doing bits and pieces here and there. Have fun with the snippets key!!

Brilliant card Di. Love the bright colours. xxx

That backing paper is lovely! Great for a freebie! Love the card Di xx
Ps. I have bought my promarkers and might be interested in that fine tip you were talking about? I tried colouring an image and the slimmer tip was just not slim enough for the fine detail on the image. Have you still got some left? I will happily give you something for them. Feel free to email me at Thankyou! Xx

I can certainly say that I love this image as I used it on my youngest Grandson's card. Love the papers you have chosen to go with it. Great card.
