Pastels Challenge-WW reveal

As Spring  is slowly (very slowly) sneaking up on us, the girls over at Whimsical Designs was challenged this week with a Pastels challenge.. Stephanie gave us a photo for inspiration and I decided to create a Birthday card for my niece who just turned 15 about a week ago..  She is into skateboarding and after a little searching through the Silhouette online store for a skate board, I came up with the idea for this card:

I figured pastels was a great choice of colors since this is for a girl..LOL

Here is the inspiration photo:

and for some close ups:

I thought to use a road sign for the placement of the sentiment.. 

I attached most of the die cuts with foam tape and added some faux stitching to the edge of the card

for added detail, I inked the edges and then added dots of different colored Stickles.

for supplies used:

Silhouette Cameo
Sil design edition software

Die cuts: Silhouette Online store
Canon printer

Sentiment stamp: Whimsical Designs
"Whimsical Fun collection!"

Prints: Digital kit
White cardstock
foam tape
Black fine tip marker
inks: colorbox chalk inks

That's my Wednesday post for this week..
