you can do it (SSS)

Well I intentionally included chevrons and sequins in this encouragement card for DS who is taking his road test for his permit (if he doesn't pass this time around, there'll have to be a sympathy card  I suppose!)

Cuz CASual Fridays challenge #116 was to use chevrons and sequins.

I missed the deadline. Nothing new there, eh?  But I stamped my butt off so I'm playing over at Simon Says Stamp "Use a Stamp" too.

I decided the design could work for our friend who is going through chemo treatments too. Changed the colors up to be a bit more masculine and put the scene on an incline to show the uphill struggle.

Enjoy your weekend.  We're loving fall break over here.  And maybe you wanna cross your fingers for DS.... and for me if I end up in a car with him driving soon  ;)

ETA:  He passed!  Fun times ahead...

Kiss goodbye to the car! I like how you changed the design for for your friend, and how the design works so well for both circumstances.

These are perfect. What a creative way to use sequins! Love the thought you put into these cards, too (especially the incline). Bummer about the deadline...I miss them all the time, too.

So did you have to create a sympathy card or a celebratory card after the test?? I'm sure this card was great encouragement - meaningful but with a fun and quirky car too!
