Birthday flowers

Here's my first creation from my US trip - staying up way too late in my friend's crafty space! Designed2Delight image in Spellbinder's oval, coloured with Prismacolours and blinged up with Kaisercraft gems, pale pink glitter glue and glossy accents on the vase. Papers are Basic Grey (green), K&Compancy (circles) and pink dots (unknown). I think the sentiment stamp might be Studio G. Recollection green gems; ribbon/ric rac and buttons from my friend's stash. All materials are from my friend's wonderful craft room. Submitted to the following challenges:

Car #17 for the birthday boy

Here's the card I made for a friend's son's 17th birthday. He hasn't got his driver's licence yet and she thought he could benefit from some gentle encouragement - that's why we have the "P" for his provisional licence. The car is dry embossed on Coredinations card using an old embossing template I got as a free gift with an English cardmaking magazine years ago. I sanded the car and customised it with stickers and blue brads. I've had the metal sentiment for many years (might be Making Memories). Kaisercraft paper; textured paper and white gel pen to create the road; brads from my stash.
