Pink By Design Ink It Pink Challenge

Hey everyone!! I love posting on Saturdays... Maybe it's because a lot of bloggers seem to take the weekends off... I really miss my favorite blogger's lack of posting over the weekends! :( Oh well, just one reason to look forward to Mondays! (That, and the Bachelorette!!! :)) 

Today I wanted to show you a card that someone asked me to make so they could give it to their friend for his 50th birthday

He has recently purchased a Harley for himself so I thought these colors, along with a motorcycle silhoutte from the Silhouette store would be perfect. My cameo cut the card pretty well (way better than my cricut would have, that's for sure!!) since it was a REALLY detailed cut. As I was taking a peek through the Silhouette store I saw quite a few things I loved, so I finally broke down and bought a subscription... 

I also thought this sentiment was perrrrfect! This stamp - this whole stamp set (Take the Cake), actually - has been very well loved by me. :) 

Here is what I used to make this card... 
- motorcycle from the silhouette store
- Take the Cake stamp set by Pink by Design
- dotted Cuttlebug embossing folder
- doodles with a white gelly roll pen

This card fits perfectly into the Ink It Pink Challenge going on right now over at Pink By Design!! The theme of the challenge is masculine cards. Make sure you head on over there and check it out, they have been giving away some great prizes!! 

As you are reading this, my little family and I will be enjoying all the festivities at the rodeo in the little town close to here!! I'll post some pics!! Enjoy your weekend!!
