Dude Time Doodles - Travel

The weeks are flying by! And its time for another Dude Time Doodles challenge!  The theme this week is


So, tenuous link time with my creation!  Although I'm basing mine on travelling FAST!  I've used Dale Isenhardt and carefully cut around him after colouring with Promarkers.  He's been added with a double layer of foam pads so he really does stand out!

The background text was a freebie download from Papercraft Inspirations and I've taken off the Happy Birthday bit at the bottom and added the gold flecks and a bit of inking around the edges.

This is a rather apt card as Samuel had a rather good weekend again - he came second in round 7 of the Cadet Inkart Championship at Daytona Manchester and he now moves up to be second overall in the Championship too!  So another trophy for me to polish (actually as long as you don't touch them you can't tell they need polishing - its the finger prints in the dust that give it away!)

Good luck with the challenge!  Pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the Design Team's inspiration and to view the rules!
