Oliver's New Wheels

I have two cards to share today - a boy one and a girl one.  The girls one will be on the next post so do come back as she is a tad special.

First of all here is the boys one - now I don't have many boy images but recently bought this wee one from Funky Kits - please meet Oliver on his New Wheels....

He is a wee smasher I think....coloured with PMs and matted and layered onto Navy and Pale Blue CoOrdinations card.  To get the checked effect below I simply used my embossing tool and my Guillotine to create the checks then sanded them all down - quite effective I think.  The sentiment I made on the PC using shapes in Word 2010 (so much stuff on there that can be used in Cardmaking).

 The finished card has papers from Pink Petticoat.
I am entering this into the following challenges:~

Moving Along With The Times No Girls Allowed and
The Poodles Parlour Let's Hear It For The Boys.

Oliver's New Wheels rubber stamp from Funky Kits;
DPs from Pink Petticoat and CoOrdinations card.

Many thanks and do come visit in a wee while when my next specail card will be up.
