40th birthday

I made a card, last week, requested for a lady racing card driver! I didn't know there were any, but there are!



Anyhow it had to include a racing car of a certain type, can't remember what type - sorry! I had the car off the web and made it into a digi type picture (I hope) and added 40 onto the bonnet (hood) it had a yellowie stripe on it and was black, so I tried to match the papers to that, luckily after a search of my papers I found digi paper by SummertimeDesigns "Ringing in the Berries"  and I LOVE it.  I have a digi called woman with champagne, I have had a VERY long time, so of course I haven't an idea of the artist, please let me know so that I can give credit.  I paper pieced her dress in PS and coloured her also in PS. I added a shadow to her,  I cut her out, with a frame of black, out of Penny Duncan's Shapelies on my Cricut, printed out the paper which was on Cuddly Buddly Eggshell Gloss paper, love that texture :) printed the main card with one of the papers directly on it, then placed the others on the card, I Stickled the flowers and added the black frame and digi image to the front , I added the name and 40 to the front with 3D foam pads, then little black buttons I had in my stash.  I had good feedback from it, thankfully.
