JAI 305 sketch challenge - beautiful ride birthday

It's time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink & Tina has given us this fun & flexible sketch to play with.
The team used it in lots of ways & for all sorts of occasions so make sure you check out all our projects here. As for me, I couldn't resist using that cute little vw bug from Beautiful Ride again to make this card.
You can see that I rotated the sketch too so it looked like this...
I also made my ends a banner - apparently I can't make a card without them since I got the awesome banner triple punch. I now realise my banner probably should have been closer to the bottom too but I think you can still totally see the sketch in my card so I'll leave it at that.

About the bug - it's stamped in archival black ink on watercolour paper, & coloured with an aquapainter & ink from my lost lagoon, soft suede & crumb cake ink pads. Then cut out & popped on dimensionals
More details - the base is tip top taupe (I so love saying that!) & paper is from the Go Wild 6x6 paper stack. The stamped banner is crumb cake card stamped in archival black with a great sentiment from the Party Wishes stamp set, then popped up with dimensionals onto another white banner. I think that little pop of white creates balance with the white in the other banners. A strip of lost lagoon card & some black candy dots completes the sketch & card.
Thanks for visiting today & I hope you liked my take on the sketch. All supplies are listed below & available to order from my store. I'd love you to pin my card or leave a comment if you liked it too.

Inky wishes, Di

Love seeing the sketch flipped. What an awesome card! Your little VW is coloured beautifully - I didn't think I'd get much use out of that set so I didn't get it, but I kinda wish I had seeing this :) xx

So cool that you flipped the sketch Di! I do love that Beetle and you've coloured it beautifully to stand out from amongst the beautiful neutrals. So clever! xx
