Driving Test Congratulations


My stepdaughter Katie passed her driving test this week and after quite a struggle to find the image I wanted, I finally came up with this card to send her.


The image is a Forever Friends stick on, which I've mounted onto card, cut around & attached with silicon to raise it slightly off the background, the ripped in two L plate image I found on the internet and again mounted onto card & raised. The map background was an idea I "borrowed", with permission, from my friend Laura, who had used the idea on her own cards which I thought was very clever and I used the Swindon area because that's where Katie lives. The pink sentiment is cut out using a Cuttlebug die, from SU Pink Passion card which is the same as the layer underneath the map. So it's definately a girl's card and I think she'll like it!
