Tire Tracks (TCPTUES)

Hey there all! Here's my card for this week's TCP TUESDAY 152. The challenge this week is to make a shaped card. Which is a pretty fun and different challenge. They are also doing a blog hop at TCP this week, so go check out the hop! They had a new release last night and OH BOY, there is some GREAT new stuff in their line:) 

Sooooo, my card, I decided to use this adorable stamp set called "Joyride" LOOOOOVE this one! I made a circular card because I was **trying** to make a tire. As I was photographing it, I realized it looks more like a record album, whoops! If you are not as old as me, maybe YOU will think it looks like a tire since records were not your form of music growing up, right? lol, I was commiserating with my friends on facebook today, because I took the boys to a movie and one of those trivia things popped up on the screen, and it said "Justin Bieber was born in 1994."And all I could think was "Justin Bieber was born AFTER I graduated from high school!" LOL, so anyway, I had that as my status on facebook today, and we all had a good laugh about how old we are:) So, I was trying to make a tire, I cut a large black cardstock circle and used my scoring board to create the tire "tread." You can see that aspect far better in the lower pic, here.  Then I created my hubcap, well, let's go with "custom rim" right? I cut a smaller silver metallic cardstock circle and added some very old white metal hardware to it and put gold and pink rhinestones in the center of the hardware. I popped it up with dimensionals in the center of my "tire." I added my punched sentiment to the center of the hubcab and some rhinestone flourishes to the tire. For my bunny I stamped her twice, once on the green patterned paper and once on white where I colored her with Copics. I paper pieced the scooter with the patterned paper and added some pink gems for the lights. 
Tire "tread" is more obvious in this pic....

I hope you like my card! My husband just told me it looks like a sombrero, so we'll just see how many folks **get** that it's SUPPOSED to be a tire, lol! Have a great day! -Noelle
