Forthcoming Birthday Card

Hello My Friends Todays Challenge is
Round / Square / Easel Card

Today i have chosen an Easel Card Challenge for

Challenge #125 August 25-September 1, 2011

Here is my Card for the Challenge

 Obviously i made this card for a Man but l suppose it could be for a lady too! 
And to begin with i used Black Card Stock from my stash, Background papers (Dots) from Summerdriggs, the image (Car & Gloves) came from a freebie which i have had for year's  
Mounted with 3D Sticky pads onto White card, circles cut out from Spellbinders dies, used a very thin strip of black card to make the posts for the traffic lights and Red, Amber & Green Sequins from my stash, With Love & Best Wishes Sentiments from rubber stamps Papermania, and Black Card Candy
Hope you like what you see and thank you for stopping by
Any comments you may leave are appreciated and i read them all
Many thanks Sandra H xx
