Driving Test Celebration

Hello lovely peeps, I hope you are well.

I delved into my bag of paper scraps for today's card, to do a bit of paper piecing. 

My youngest nephew has passed his driving test and I thought the 'Exploration' stamp set designed by Stacey Barras (Crafter's Companion) was ideal for his 'well done' card. The signpost is only half the height you see on my card - I stamped it straight onto the bottom half of a 5x7" card and then masked off the top of the stamped image before stamping the signpost again in the top half.

After that I stamped the signpost onto several matching scraps of paper - it doesn't matter if it's only a tiny scrap as long as it's bigger than one of the signs.

Using my stamping platform to line things up I stamped sentiments from various stamp sets onto the signs before cutting the signs out and glueing them onto the main image.

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

Thanks for stopping by, stay safe

Congratulations to your nephew and safe drive always!!! If I receive this card, I will have hard time choosing destination; this is even harder than the drive test, teeheehee. Great card and the signs speak for itself. Thank you once again for partying with us at STAMPlorations Belated 7th Birthday Celebration and Good Luck Katrina!
