Enjoy the Ride

Here is a card I made for a birthday of a co-worker. I was looking for a motorcycle to color and found this cute Mario so I chose him.

Isn’t he cute? I used Core’dinations cardstock for my base, matting and tire tracks. I made the tire tracks using Tim Holtz Texture Fade Dot Matrix. My sentiment is from the Cricut Graphically Speaking cartridge.

Here is a close up of Mario colored with Copics.
