SSS194, Hero Arts Birthday

Hi Blog Friends, I'm playing in the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge this week. I wanted to use my new Hero Arts set with cars, trucks and motorcycles. I'm always on a search for masculine images to make cards for family members. This card is for my stash and will be used soon for one the men in my life, probably my B.I.L.
I used Simple Stories Awesome paper again and relied on the sketch to do its magic with the paper. I colored the cool car with Copics and inked around it with a PTI linen color. The Inky Antics sentiment is stamped on a pre-printed journal card that comes in the paper pad. Some twine and adorable Studio Calico wood veneer stars finish it off.  Bye for now!
