Babe magnet?

One of my nephews turns 16 this month and he's getting a scooter to ride to school so I thought this would be a fun card for him, hope it makes him smile in a good way.

I used a lily of the valley stamp and coloured it with promarkers.
I used a circle die but allowed some of the image to spill over the edge of the die cut.

I used a map stamp from a set from the Stampman , one of the first stamps I ever bought and stamped on cream paper colouring the roads different colours( not that you can see them) in hopes it looks a little more realistic. They live in a rural area so not many roads.

I used a kraft base card and some purple plaid paper to create the base layer and a printed sentiment I found in my stash that came from an ancient kit I got when first starting to card make, I cut it in half and attached to each side of the image. I finished the card with some peel-off numbers , well 16 is a milestone of sorts especially when it's you that's 16.



I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Daisy Chain - happy birthday

Dream Valley challenges - for the boys

Seize the birthday - anything goes

QKR - anything goes or pumpkins
