Snoopy Birthday

Happy Saturday, everyone! Today I would love to share a birthday card I made for a dear young lady, Lyric, who hopefully one day will become my neice by adoption. She's a very cool girl, who loves the outdoors, so I just had to use Snoopy's Chopper for her birthday card.



I have used the following challenges in the making of this card:
Splitcoast's Inspiration Challenge: choose a print from Poster Cabaret....I chose this Black Rebel Motorcycle Club poster for inspiration, which helped me to decide which color was right for the chopper, which then helped in deciding on ribbon;
Scrap It With A Song: "Born To Be Wild".....this may not be a layout, but how can you look at Snoopy's Chopper and not sing that song?!;
The All Sorts Challenge: Use spots and stripes........I love twisting challenges in creative ways....instead of creating a rolling landscape, I created stripes by masking and sponging straight lines, and instead of making pavement, I used a stamp from "Itty Bitty Backgrounds" by Stampin Up to make spots for the dirt road. The trees were stamped with "Trees Three", also by Stampin Up. Snoopy's Chopper is by Stampabilities and the ribbon came from Michael's dollar bin!

Thanks for stopping by today!!! Have a very blessed weekend!!!

Angie, I love you new pink look! It has been a little while since I have been here. I remembered the blog hop and checked in to see what was going on. But, I missed it by a bit. It was still wonderful to look at!
