Cards for Men DT card- Challenge 19...

Our challenge this fortnight is to make a card for a man or boy on the theme of transport and we are being sponsored by Peachy Keen Stamps who are giving not 1, but 2 stamp sets to our lucky winner!

Here's a bit about our sponsor: Peachy Keen Stamps is a family owned and operated leading clear stamp manufacturer based out of Northeast Wisconsin. Our stamps are made with the highest quality polymer on the market today, giving them their unique peach tint. The whimsical images designed by Kathy Jakopovich coupled with their durability make them a favorite amongst scrapbookers, card makers, and artists alike. These stamps are sold exclusively online at and at independent stamp and scrapbook stores worldwide. Please visit our website for a complete list of retail locations.

I decided to make a 'congratulations for passing your driving test card' using this Elzybells stamp that was from the large order of stamps that I just had to have before they close! The torn up 'L' plate and the sentiment both come from a Woodware clear set. The papers are from a Stuff to Scrap blog train called 'French Tulips'.
Your Next Stamp have 'anything goes' as their challenge,  Fab 'n 'Funky have 'what'eva!' and Paper Cutz have 'any theme, any colour' so I am entering this for all these. The Creative Cottage have 'celebrations'- what better reason to celebrate than passing your test! Stamp Something have 'spots and stripes' and this fits with my backing papers. Finally, Crafty Creations also have 'transportation' as their theme.

Hi Alison

What a great card.

Love your paper choices alongside that fab image.

Such a shame that Elzybells are going to be "no more".
