Masculine Card and Freebie

Hey there peeps, its been a little over 2 weeks since my last post, time sure does fly. Wish I had more time one my hands to post more often. 
So I sat down yesterday to make a masculine birthday card. I think it turned out OK. The colors I chose makes it look a little Christmas-y but that was so not my intentions. The image comes from the lovely Anne Fenton. She is super talented and has a freebie on her blog every Thursday, I love her work and her images are adorable. You should definitely check her work out. The sketch come from Priscilla Styles. They have a sketch challenge going on right now and since I'm just oh so terrible with sketches I decide to try out that one.
I colored the image using the copics that Audrey sent me. I love working with them cause its a real treat compared to pencil crayons. I looked through the sentiment folder in my computer to see if I had a sentiment that would fit to this card and when I didn't find one I got the weird idea of making one. I looked through Google images to see if I could find a circle flame and race car. I used photo shop to edit the two together and added a sentiment in the middle. I think it turned out great. If any of you would like to have it to use on your card the help yourself to it at the bottom of this post.
