Happy Birthday to you!

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!!

I hope your all having a great day! I have a quick project that I made today for a few challenges going and to add to my birthday card stash since I am a little low on them right now, especially masculine cards.

Believe it or cricut on this project. Surprised???  I am surprised too because when there is a cricut-less challenge, I seriously scratch my head and cannot come up with thing......too funny!

My card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 with a base layer of 4 x 5 1/4. For the car I used a die from Tim Holtz  called Old jalopy. The paper I used for the old jalopy is from lasting impressions called root beer-crinkle.  It was perfect because it already had a weathered, crinkled look to it. I used some corrugated cardboard that I had in my recycling bin for some of the car pieces and for the border edge at the bottom of card.  I distressed all the pieces with Tim Holtz-walnut stain. The adorable little tag and sentiment is from My Craft Spot called tiny tags. Super cute set!! I also used My Creative Time scallop and stitched circle die and added another cute sentiment from that adorable tiny tag set.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) My Craft Spot ~Challenge #53-Things that go!
2.) Made Especially For You ~card using recycled material

Thanks for stopping,
Sherrie K
