Girly Snoopy for Susie

Wahoo! I finally had a chance to get back to my craft studio. My personal life is pretty crazy right now, but I NEED my crafting to de-stress. My card is a bit late, as the recipient’s birthday was August 9. I picked up this stamp on clearance from Hobby Lobby and knew it would be perfect. Susie is a big Harley Davidson fan so I’m always looking for motorcycle type supplies. My hubby found the stickers (also on clearance at Hobby Lobby) and knew I ‘had’ to have them. It’s great to have such a supportive hubby for my crafts. He’s even been known to walk through Hobby Lobby by HIMSELF to see if there are any great deals. I know; I’m very blessed. (Please see the Ins and Outs for links to the challenge websites and feel free to join in the fun).
Sketch Inspiration ~ Midnight Madness #15 Another winner from Priscilla that makes crafting easy!
Color Inspiration Caardvarks myStampBox Challenge ~ Black, White, Hot Pink I LOVE the way the pink pops with the black and white. Snoopy is such a cool dude, he doesn’t mind riding on a hot pink bike. I added the slightest hints of yellow as I didn’t know what else to do with Woodstock. There’s a bit of yellow highlights in the gas tank as well.

Image Detail I used Spica’s throughout the image to add some sparkle.
I jazzed up my plain white ribbon with a string of silver cording. I just slid it under the knots before pulling them tight.
Inside It’s tricky to see the sparkly Harley Davidson sticker on the top. It was part of the sticker I used on the front. I just snipped them apart to get a double ‘feature’.
