Time To Cruise!

This is another card for a man.  It's for a very dear friend who lives in Colorado now.  We met through playing golf when we both lived on the Big Island in Hawaii.  He is a super guy, just like a brother.  He is very into motor cycles, and has a great Harley (see the bottom picture he took of me on his bike!).  Anyhow, it is his birthday and I wanted to use a moto on his card.  I found this image on line and loved it.  It was printed from my computer and then I added a bit of shading.  I used a die cut shape for the image and to print my sentiment on. Then I did a bit of inking on the edges, used some nice paper to show it off, and I was very satisfied with the results!

Here's a pic of me on his bike before we went off on a great ride!

Enjoy your Sunday, and happy crafting!
