Good news and a male card!

I have been asked by the lovely ladies at Craft Your Passion challenges to join them as their Guest Designer for July-I am honoured and very thankful :-) 
I will do the draw for my candy later, and post a new candy so please come back later to see if you have been lucky and to enter my new one! 

Here is the card I made for my brother passing his driving test. I knew I had a really old stamp with some teddies in a car and it took ages to find it! I stamped it in Memento and coloured with Promarkers and silver gel pen on the accents. I used Bev's cloud technique around the car, and on the window so it looked realistic. I then mounted the image on Blue coredinations card. I used my lovely new My Minds Eye papers and made panels of them and placed the on Kraft card. I then placed the Kraft card onto a square card blank. I used Hampstead ribbon along the bottom panels and added a 'Congratulations' peel off in the bottom right hand corner. Lastly I added three odd buttons I thought would compliment the card.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Oldie but a Goodie: Anything Goes
Crafters Companion Challenges: One for the Boys
Crafty Cardmakers: Spots and Stripes
Bling it on Challenges: Anything goes
Here Come The Boys: Spots and Stripes
