STOP - happy birthday

Hi there,
well this will be a first. I am actually going to post two cards for this weeks
Mojo Monday sketch. Here's the sketch.

Ok I'm going to have to admit to fiddling with the sketch this week, I tried, I really did, but in the end I decided I had to make the card square, it just suited the layout better. Here's the card.

The inside was just finished off simply.

As you can see its a birthday card - for a 3 year old in this case. I went to my trusty By Land set and tried and true boy colour combo - Brilliant Blue, Pumpkin Pie and Bashful Blue. I started by photocopying the car and then using two way glue (dried to clear so it will come off again) stuck the car over the small dotty pattern from the Jersey Shore DSP (retired). Then cut out the car. To finish the car, I coloured a bit of white card with Basic Gray, and layered that with some acetate and then stuck it behind the windows. Then the car was mounted on lots of dimensionals. I wanted to make the stop sign a bit more solid so glued three layers of Kraft underneath it, then trimmed to size. Then I used Crystal Effects to highlight the stop and edge. The traffic lights were punched with the 1/4 inch circle punch and then popped up on dimensionals and lastly I stamped BEEP straight onto the twill tape using classic ink. The orange actually came out even better but that ended up under the dotty Bashful Blue panel. Hope you like it.
