Racing birthday card for Dean

Hello everyone

I am sharing with you today the birthday card I recently made for my little brother Dean who turned 23.

This was my first card I made with a digi stamp (from digi stamp boutique) and loved it.  I chose this image because Dean had put on a bet a few months ago and won.  What better image to use?!  I made the rosette from card (No.1 brother) and added ribbon to finish it off.  The image is coloured with promarkers and highlighted with a white gel pen (although I do feel I have gone over the top a bit with the highlighting...)  I wanted the card to stand out from the rest so made it into an easel card (needless to say he couldn't set it up when he opened it and I had to show him).  I added a border at the bottom for the folded part to stand against and added 'Happy Birthday Dean' and finished off with some blue dots and more ribbon.  I really like how this turned out and I think Dean was impressed too because he asked 'what website did you print that from?'  I said I coloured it myself - impressed!

I am entering this into the August 12 digstamp boutique challenge

Thank you for stopping and taking the time to have a look.
