Congrats... You Did It!

I'm not sure whether I'm tempting fate or not with this card, its hopefully going to be for my eldest after he passes his driving test later on this week :)

I wanted the card to be pretty much in the style of the 'L' plates so I started with cutting out the Hero Arts Congrats (does have a matching stamp but I didn't want a white edge) three times from left over scraps of white cardstock.  A generous amount of festive berries Distress Ink was added for a nice vibrant red.  

The sentiment is from the same stamp set and I used the printed acetate the stamps come on to position where I wanted the 'you did it'.  I do it this way because once you add the layered die cut, its impossible to use a stamping platform for the smaller sentiment.

Once completely dry I added the die cut and finished the card off with the cute little car rub-on from October Afternoon.
