The Big 50

Hi again! Today I have a quick post before heading out to a 50th birthday party for a family friend. It's a surprise party, and the big gift is the biggest part of the surprise! My brother and his best friend have been restoring a car for his friend's Dad. So in honor of the work they did on the car, and the birthday boy's love for muscle cars, I did a 70's Plymouth Duster. I found the image on the web and colored it with watercolored pencils and accented it with glitter glue and clear glue. The card was made using the sketch for ABC Challenge which was including an "X." It also fits the "eye eye" challenge on Cute Card Thursday. All of the other embellies are buttons and brads. And the license plate reads "Big 50." Thanks for checking it out and have a great day!

That's a great manly card, Janna! I'm sure his dad loved it... and his gift :) Was he shocked?
