Get Sketchy #8 - Birthday Wishes

This week we had a fabulously fun sketch to work with over at get sketchy with a bonus challenge of using brads.  Not only was I inspired by the sketch but also by this throw pillow I came across while shopping at IKEA in Vancouver.  Our trips there are never complete without a walk through the showroom.  The older two get to have fun in the germ infested play room while my husband and I get to spend one on one time with our toddler.

Anyhow this is what I came up with.  I didn't intend to make a masculine card but it managed to happen which is great since I can always use them.  I distressed the edges of all the circles and added sponging to frame the sentiment  My favourite things about this car are the all the circles, the colours and that gold floss.
