This is a hybrid card created with My Digital Studio. I absolutely love this new patterned paper Spice Cake, but my pre-order from the Holiday Mini, has not arrived yet. So I decided to try my luck with MDS, and mocked up a version of this card. Then I printed it out in pieces and put it together. I love, love, love this paper, especially how it features Pool Party. The scallop around the circle was very easy to make. First I punched out a strip with the Dotted Scallop border punch and then I ran it through the crimper. Then I pinched and tucked it to make the border of the large circle. I should explain that this card is made for my Brother-in-Law's birthday which is coming up this weekend and he's a huge motorcycle fanatic, so I knew I needed to add the bike image so he wouldn't find this card too 'girly'.
And what started off my quest to make this card was this fabulous sketch from Julee at Mojo Monday. I'm not sure why, but this sketch really spoke to me.
