savor the journey card by lauren bergold

i think i'm probably the first person to combine december's pixie dust paperie kit with harley davidson motorcyles, but maybe i won't be the last, because i think this card came out rather well:
i ♥love♥ the pack of travel-themed tattered angels bingo boards that came in this month's kit; so much so, that when my sister-in-law sent along this photo of her hubby with his early birthday present, i knew i had the start of something good!
i printed the picture, carefully trimmed my b-i-l from the background, and raised the image on foam tape. i added some purple highlights to a bingo board and one of the calling cards with glimmer mist from the kit. i layered a few mats, and made my own photo corners & diecut flourishes with papers from the kit. ok, yes, i did cheat VERY SLIGHTLY by bringing in a little bit of thin crafter's sheet metal (you can also flatten out regular SODA CANS!) which i embellished with cuttlebug's "diamond pane" embossing folder...but the effect is soooooo darned cool, i'm hoping pixie-in-chief kirsty vittetoe will forgive me! :)

and there you have it: proof of the super-versatility of pixie dust kits...AND...a completely customized birthday card for my one-of-a-kind brother-in-law!

Kirsty's Note -
Brilliant creation! I love this masculine card, once again, you have showcased how versatile the Pixie Kit can be, great job Pixie Lauren!
