Twins Birthday - CR84FN11

This week our twin grandsons turn 18, I don't know how that happened, since I'll be celebrating my 39th in 2 months!  lol  I decided to use the colors from this weeks challenge at CR84FN, red, kraft and brown.  Proud to say that I was chosen among the top 3 last week!




and here is the inspiration


Stamps used - cars, B-Line Design, Cornish Heritage Farms and SU.
Thanks for stoppin' by, hugz...

Incredible cards for your birthday boys!

Lynne Phelps said...

I love these! That brick folder is one of my faves and the colors are awesome! Love the way you colored the cars with that vivid pop of red. Are the license tags DP or a stamp? Hope it's not Cornish Heritage since they are gone!! :-(
