It Took Decades…

Hiya, friends and happy Sunday to you! It’s my birthday, my 40th! And dang – it did take decades to look this good, lol! Every decade just gets better, right? Please tell me it is so!

Today, I am sharing with you a challenge post with Dare 2B Artzy. The first weekend of each month D2BA begins a themed challenge where you can create a card or scrapbook layout and enter to win your choice of a stamp set and an ink pad by D2BA. This month’s theme is Girly.

So fun, my friends! If you’d like to see inspiration by other team members or entrants head on over to the Girly Challenge. To play along (and I hope you do!) just upload your picture through the blue “Add Your Link” button near the bottom of the post.

I’m not a girly girl. I know, 4 daughters, one might think otherwise. Really, none of my girls are either. Probably saves a bit of my hubby’s sanity that way, lol! I sat an spun my wheels for a bit before I really got rolling on this card. I knew I wanted the car, but that was it! Girls like cars too, darn it all!

I began this card with the car from Classic Dad, all hot pink and sparkled up. It was colored with Copics in Rv25, FrV1 and RV19. I added Clear Wink of Stella and a silver Gelly Roll for the shine and accents.

Next, I trimmed down the car panel and added a hot pink cardstock mat. I backed that with sparkly embossed Blissful Blooms. Once those layers were assembled together I popped them up over the background that I had stamped hot pink with “vintage” from the Classic Dad set.

Other Copics used for the asphalt and sky were: T9, T7, T5, T3 and BG000.


Remember that you can always find the current D2BA challenge over on their blog listed at the top of the sidebar. I hope you will consider playing along with us this month with the Girly theme.

Goodies are linked in the post and below for your convenience. Feel free to head right to the D2BA shop here!

Thank you, friends, for reading along with me today!

Hugs, Janette
