Downhill run!

Ok still battling my list of Mad March Birthdays… I would ask why so many birthdays in March but since mine is one I better not!  Hehe…  This one is for a young man who is turning 9!

I am entering quite a few challenges with this one… I don’t think I will win any but it IS keeping me motivated to get these cards done in a timely and focused fashion! (Wonders never cease!) So thank you challenge makers… much appreciated!  Now in NO particular order…

First:  Colour challenge of GREEN… with CardMakinMamas.  Perfect for the month of March! 

Second: Simon Says Stamps Challenge of Anything goes with a highlight on Tim Holtz products… which I love especially for my male cards!

Third: Crafty Cardmakers Challenge of Masculine Birthday and Technology!

Fourth: Card marking and Papercraft wanted to see some results of using scraps!  That’s what my motorbike and happy birthday Panel is made out of!

Scraps... it's amazing what all those little bits can make!

Materials Used:
Green corrugated cardboard. 
Scrap card from stash.
Sizzix Tim Holtz embossing folder “steampunk”.
Cuttlebug “Celebration stamps” Die cut (the stamp shape).
Cuttlebug “Happy Birthday 2 x 2.75” folder.
Cuttlekids “Offroad” motorbike.

Thanks for stopping by…
