A Hallmark Challenge

Hi all!  The card featured below was made especially for a challenge that Hallmark is holding until August 22nd, 2010.  The challenge is to create a teenager birthday card, and if you win, you will get your card printed and delivered to ALL Hallmarks!  How cool is that?!  So, of course I HAD to submit one!!!!!

This card started out as a girl card, but ended up as a boy card.  The reds and grays clearly changed the look of the card.  I LOVE how it turned out though!  Vain, I know!  LOL!  This was definitely NOT the picture I had in my head!  I love when that happens!  It keeps me on my crafty toes!

Paper is from The Homework Stack (DCWV), red from SU!, white.  The car is from MFT's Cruising Cosmo Girl.  I used lots of copics to get a shaded look.  I kept picturing Cindy Lawrence's bear and tried to blend so it looks real!  What do you think?  Did I achieve that look?

Here's a close up of the car!

Have a STAMPTASTIC day!!!
