Edwin's Bike

I created this birthday card using Edwin With Bike from Magnolia.  The color combo that I choose was lime green, vibrant blue and kraft.

I used sketch #34 from Papertake Weekly's sketchy free for all challenge. As you can see I decided to rotate the sketch.

I started with a 5x5 kraft card base. I added a piece of vibrant blue card stock cut just a little smaller than the base.  I cut a piece of lime green card stock and a smaller piece of plaid card stock and added it to a piece of kraft card stock. Then I added a thin strip of kraft card stock between them.  I colored the image using Spectrum Noir pens. I stamped the sentiment on white card stock. I backed both the image and the sentiment in vibrant blue and then again in kraft.  I added 3 blue star buttons and 2 lime green star buttons down the strip of kraft card stock.

Here is the finished inside of the card.....
