Happy 16th Birthday!

Hi all!  Hope everyone had a nice 4th of July (if you are in the US!).  We had a nice relaxing day at our cabin.  A little rain in the afternoon, but it cleared up for the beautiful evening!
The card I made today is for our neighbors' son Kevin who turned 16 today.  By 10:30 this morning he already had his driver's permit!  Remember those days?  So I had to make a special card for him that was driving-themed.  The paper I chose is Basic Grey's Wander.  It had this cool collage paper with all sorts of road signs and such.  I thought it would work well for my theme.  The numbers are from PTI's By the Numbers dies and the sentiment is from Sentiment Sampler from Paper Smooches. 
I originally used Handsome Hunter cardstock for the numbers, then changed my mind and went for the Cherry Cobbler instead.  So instead of wasting the numbers, I put them inside.  The car paper is also from Wander.

I used the Clean and Simple sketch for my layout.

Hope you are enjoying your summer!  I know I am!  Thanks for stopping by!

This is adorable, Lisa. Love how you used the sketch and those PTI numbers are always a great way to make an age statement :)
