Happy December Birthday

It's time for some December Birthdays, one being my brother, who loves all things motorized! I paired this weeks Play Date Cafe color palate with this fresh and clean sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches

A simple mailable card for a man is always a plus when it's pulled off without too much fuss. Guys don't like fuss, they like to walk into a store, purchase what they came for and leave. Women on the other hand, tend to like to sit and stay awhile feeling all the fabrics, soaking in all the layers, etc, if you know what I mean! 

SU! products used:
Stamps - Need For Speed
Ink - Craft Basic Black, Basic Black
Paper - Basic Black, Whisper White, Island Indigo
Other - Black Embossing Powder
