Biker boy for the Sweet Pea Stampers challenge

Today sees the start of a new challenge on the Sweet Pea Stampers blog and the theme is 'birthday'. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs by the rest of the team and join in with our challenge.

Right, the second challenge this month is another easy peasy one... Birthdays.
please remember , we need a stamped image on your card and there is a bigger prize for using a Sweet Pea Stamp :)
Those who entered the last challenge using a sweet pea stamp, remember to do the same for this challenge to be in with the chance of our GRAND prize for April - see last challenge for details.
Good luck!

For my design card I decided to make a boy's birthday card, using Karen Middleton's Biker Boy - DIGI coloured with spectrum noir pens. Background papers, two of which have torn edges were from my offcuts box (the main one is an old 'English Paper Company' paper) and the birthday sentiment panel behind the image was rescued from a gift card that John received. The 'Have a wonderful day' sentiment is a Creata textured rub on.

I'm sharing this on my Patterned Paper April challenge - if you haven't yet discovered this, please click on the link, get out some of that hoarded patterned paper ... and join in the fun - I'd love to see you there.
