Gingham for Dirt?!

A boy birthday card today using retired Need For Speed.  This is a super set for those masculine cards.   I do hope you got your hands on it before it retired.  It's still a fairly new set to me so it wont be disappearing from my shelf any time soon. 

I've used the Quad image on this card and stamped it in Marina Mist then fussy cut out. The background has been torn around the edges and has some Crumb Cake dust sponged on using a Sponge Dauber.  The dirt trail is Cajun Craze and I used a new Wheel - Gingham.  Hah bet you never looked at it in the catalogue and thought dirt!  I think it makes super Quad bike trails though. To make the Quad bike a bit 3d I added some Dimensionals just to the wheels.

I mounted this onto Cajun Craze card stock before attaching to a Crumb Cake base. The sentiment is from Happiest Birthday Wishes also a retired Hostess set stamped in Marina Mist. I punched it out using the Modern Label Punch and mounted onto Cajun Craze punched with the Decorative Label. 

Hostess sets are brill value.  They are reduced to make those pounds stretch further and I'm loving the new sets in the main catalogue.  A gorgeous choice to choose from but this section is only for hostesses.  You don't need to have a party, although it is fun to have a get together with crafty chums.  You could be a hostess by placing an order of £150 or by joining my Stampers 6 club.  I have one place left for a new club starting in October and you could be hostess for one of the months.  Have a look at my Virtual Hostess Page for further details or get in touch to place an order or better still book a party! 

I'm popping this into seize the birthday where it's anything goes.

Hope your week is going well.  Take care.  x
