You Rev Me Up!



 As usual I'm being a total Last Minute Lucy and scooting in with hours to spare for the Moxie Fab challenges.  I'm actually entering this card in two Moxie Fab World challenges - the Make A Card With A Window challenge and the Make Your Own Background Paper challenge.  

I started off by using the colours from the Play Date Cafe.  I thought they were kind of masculine and the sentiment was inspired by the Zoom Goes My Heart stamp set from The Craft's Meow (designed by the fabulous Karen Baker) which is on my (very long) wish list.  The sentiment (which I created with Lawn Fawn's Claire's ABCs) led me to these cute little Amy Tangerine car and heart stamps.  I chose the Papertrey Ink Fillable Frames die for the window because it made me think of an exhaust cloud which I'm sure you'd have with all these cars around!!  The picture below shows the window a little better.  As usual now that I've finally made one window card they don't seem so scary anymore!  Perhaps I'll try a few more...  


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill
Stamps:  (Car & heart from Ready Set Go Amy Tangerine, (Border from Fillable Frames #5) Papertrey Ink, (Sentiment from Claire's ABCs) Lawn Fawn
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Cherry Cobbler, So Saffron, Certainly Celery) Stampin' Up
Die: (Fillable Frames #5) Papertrey Ink

Don't you love how that works - you finally try one of the dreaded techniques & lo and behold, it's easy? :) I love the colours - and the exhaust cloud shape is perfect!!
Nothing as inspiring as the last minute, btw.
