Making Tracks

Hi there! Here's one more card I made this afternoon, no challenges, just something I had been wanting to try. This was one of the sets I bought at The Cat's pajamas called "Joyride." I colored the bunny in Copics and paper pieced his scooter. I cut him out and mounted him onto a nested circles embellishment. I made a similar, smaller embellishment with the sentiment "Making Tracks." I border punched the card front with my fave edger punch and I put some decorative border strips on the inside of the card, so they peek outside the edge of the border punched right side. I saw this card over at Splitcoast today, and I thought the idea for the rhinestone headlight was too cute! I took that idea a bit further and added mini lights at the bottom as well and accented the rest of the card with rhinestones. I used my MFT rick rack die to cut an accent and I dry embossed that as well. The embellishment behind his head is actually covering up a mistake. I went to stamp the "beep beep" down and stupidly still had my "Make Tracks" stamp on the block, it left a grayish impression of those words all over the bunny's face and the blue circle, ACK! So I made that circle embellishment and pieced a new face over the old, I mean who wants a tattooed face bunny, right? He's not a gang member! lol;) In the end I actually think the extra circles actually added a nice touch to the card. 

Sometimes we all have to make tracks in our lives. I know that recently I have walked away from a situation that it was extremely necessary for me to move on from. Now if only I'd had a super-stylish-custom-painted-rhinestone-headlight scooter, right? 

Have a great day! :) -Noelle

Yes! I will take one of those scooters as well and we can make tracks down those less travelled roads.
