Happy Birthday Molly

As I was perusing blogs yesterday looking for inspiration for a birthday card for my niece, I happened upon  A La Card Monkey - a weekly challenge blog that I had not seen before, and that I really liked  The sketch images on this blog are very clever.  They look more like a card than a raw sketch, and all have an image of an animal on them. I love that.  Here's this week's sketch:

Is that adorable, or what?????  This week's challenge - Break out the new stuff for Monkey Challenge #90: New to You is to use the sketch AND something new from your stash - either something you got recently, or something that you have had, but not used before.

The card that I made is for my niece, Molly, who turned 17 on Monday.  She is a driver now (yikes!) and now, so I wanted to use a car theme. The new things I used were from PTI's Enjoy the Ride.  Though I have used the VW car outline from the set before, I have not used the solid VW, the licence plate sentiment, or the happy birthday sentiment.  I am pleased with this creation for my special girl.
If you haven't, check out the A La Card Monkey challenge blog.  There is some beautiful work there from the DT and the participants.  I know I will go there frequently. 
I appreciate your taking the time to stop in today.  Have a lovely one!
