Driving Test for Polkadoodles

Hello lovely peeps.

I'm very excited to be back at Polkadoodles today with my second card as a Guest Designer. The challenge theme for the next fortnight is 'Lucky Green' so I have made a 'good luck with your driving test' card.

I have used images and papers from the new 'Sticks and Bones' CD. It's fabulous - full of lovely 'prehistoric' images and funny sentiments.

The main image of the girl on the tortoise is called 'Riding High'. I used the pre-coloured version and cut it out with my Craft Robo.  The background is one of the scenes on the CD and I have added an arrow and bones from the embellishments section to make the 'road'. 

There are lots of fab background papers on the CD but I wanted something to echo the pattern on the  tortoise's shell, with colours to match. I opened the green gingham paper in CraftArtist 2 and clicked on 'Photo Lab' then I had a play with the 'Roman Bath' effect (under 'Fun stuff'). It extracts the colours in the image to make a lovely mosaic print.

For the sentiment I printed off the scrabble letters from Work & Play 9 - Love & Kisses. I printed them in A5 size as I had a lot of letters to fit in :)  They are attached with silicone glue for a bit of dimension.
I've added green gingham ribbon with a leaf from the embellishments section, and flowers cut from purple glitter card using a Papermania punch.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
