OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge #114

Good Sunday Evening,

Hope everyone enjoyed your day.   My day was busy but filled with fun too.  I got started early today and made two cards this morning --- then on to do some laundry - then on to visiting some friends to share crafting ideas (we made Easter Bunnies, and flowers from various punches) - back home to fix dinner and visit with hubby and now on to posting today's challenge card.

I started working on the Muscle Card Challenge at OWH using today's sketch #114.  I made one card using the sketch - then my second card - I used some diamond background that I made last night - which was larger than what the sketch called for so I added some DP - I thought the argyle went with the '57 Chevy.  :-)

To make my diamond plate I repurposed the inside of my doggie treat bags.  The car stamps are from Rubber Meets the Road.  The card stock is from SU.  The racing flag brad is from EyeLet Outlet and the screw brads are from Karen Foster.  The DP is from my scrape pile.

Thanks for stopping in and have fun crafting this week.

I just love these old muscle cars and the diamond plate embossing and patterns look great! Love those little checkered flag brads too :)

Muscle cars! A terrific choice for the challenge!

Two wonderful cars, but I used to own a Corvette so I'd have to vote for the first card. The diamond plate is perfect for these cards.

Great cards! I like the chrome diamond plate. Don't you love those screw brads! These are sure to be big hits! I know a couple of guys whose favorite colors are black and chrome. LOL You've inspired me.
