I am also entering my card in the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge.  I love this fun stamp set, but I also love all the bright colors!  

My card is for my Grandson Robert's birthday!  He loves cars and I thought this was a perfect way to show him some love!  I created this fun box card with lots of cars to celebrate his 4th birthday! 

This card was created using a new color by Stampin' Up!  Blueberry Bushel.  I used the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Box Card dies to create the box.  

These fun stamps are from Craftin Desert Divas Classic Cars.  I stamped each car, the flags, gas pump and stop lights with Memento black ink.  I colored them with Copic Markers.  It took a while, but it was worth the time.  I love these little cars!  They make me smile!  

The Happy Birthday stamp is from Simon Says Stamp Big Birthday Wishes.  Wink of Stella was added for shine!
