I used the sketch from splitcoaststampers sketch challenge as it was just perfect for the birthday card I was asked to make. I have my card rack at an antique/collectibles store in town and we've recently moved into an old gas station building. The owner's birthday is tonight and we're combining our Christmas party with a celebration of his bday. The vendors from the store have chipped in to buy him a vintage Texaco sign and asked me to make a card to go along with the gift. They specifically mentioned yellow as one of the colors so I went with that instead of white as the color behind the star.
I used the same Sanded and Itty Bitty Backgrounds to add a bit of "texture" to the base of the card.
