Good morning everyone I hope you are all enjoying a great week and  looking forward to the weekend . My card today is the birthday card I made for my cousin who celebrated his 70th birthday last Sunday we had a lovely afternoon celebrating at a restaurant in York.

Card Recipe

8x8 blank card
Black and orange card
Stamps are from a Docrafts car set I've had ages painted with Promarkers and Copic pens the small mini was covered in glossy accents.
Silver embossing powder heat embossed around the edge of the image
Papers are digi papers from the internet
Black spiders web ribbon from GNPE
Cogs are from Michael's in Florida
La La land banner die 
Candi Craftwork cards
Charm and  twine from my stash
Mini cooper sentiment comes with the stamp 
Happy Birthday sentiment down the side is LOTV

My cousin is a great mini fan and his eldest son races mini's so the card went down really well.
Have a great weekend whatever you are planning and I hope we get some better weather hugs Carole x
