Whitewash Woodgrain Masculine Birthday Card

Hello Delightful friends and family!
Playing along at Seize the Sketch #22.  This card I made for my grandson's little neighbor who celebrated his 8th birthday this week.  I also tried out this new technique for the first time for the background.  I love it! So easy and quick and perfect for the summer.  Here's a link to the website to the Whitewash Woodgrain technique (thanks Gina K Designs!).

I've used stamps from Taylored Expression on the front.  The twine (Darice) the button is Corrugated Shapes (Jillibean soup - Key Ingredient embellie from T.E.)  The ink for the background is Distress Ink (Frayed Burlap) then I applied Tsukineko Brilliance (Moonlight White) over it after I had scored 1/2" lines on a piece of bright teal card stock.  Ink for the sentiments Memento (Rich Cocoa). 

Inside of the card:  Another Corrugated shape from Jillibean Soup, The little car is from Lawn Fawn (Happy Trails and I've colored it with Copic markers and then embellished it with Glossy Accents.  The sentiment is from BoBunny  and the Designer Paper is MME "Boy Crazy" collection.

I'll also be sharing this card at WORD ART WEDNESDAY #137 (Anything Goes)

Thanks for visiting and have a great FRIDAY!!
