Check Me Out!

Well,I'm back again, experimenting with Picasa,I even taught myself a little something tonight lol!
I added text to a digi,no assistance required either,still can't get the hang of adding them to my picture album though,I'm doing it but how I have no idea!
Anyway,on to tonight's card! The digi is one of the AMAZING new car digi's by Gayle Bond,available exclusively at Scrapbook Sisters. I just added the text to the number plate,removed part of the image and stamped the greeting. Now,after entering this week's Less Is More challenge with this card,I found myself going through alternative ideas in my mind as to how I could make another one layer card with embossing,suddenly I remembered one of my earliest crafting buys,my Scrapboss by Fiskars. I must admit to having used it only a few times in the last 6 years,even considered getting rid of it but it was great for this card,I played around with lots of other embossed lines,dots etc.,but this is what I settled on. I used my Copic fine liner to add my doodled lines and that's it.
I'm using this card for the following challenges :-
Less Is More 15,One layer with embossing,
Cards For Men,Someone Special,
Incy Wincy 94,CAS,
Shabby Tearoom 62,Monochromatic,
Make It Monday 37,Anything goes.
Be sure to call back tomorrow,
Thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x
