Have a Racin' Good Birthday!

Hi Crafters! Today Glora & I are doing our Cricut Cut Challenge. Fun! :)  I chose this fun race car on the Beep Beep Cricut Cartridge for this months cut.  I find it fun making boy cards.  I enjoy the challenge.  lol  This card I made for my nephews birthday.  My sisters family LOVES Nascar, especially Jimmy Johnson.  So yes, I know this isn't a Nascar style of racecar, but I don't care.  It's a race car and I used his colors.  I'm good.  lol

I had this idea that I wanted to create a "crowd".  I remember seeing a cake that used sprinkles on it to create a crowd and loved that idea and I wanted to try and figure out if I could recreate that on a card.  So I thought 'Sprinkles = Glitter' and tried it out.  I cut out, by hand, a semi circle-ish shape and covered it with glue on top.  I took a pinch of glitter from a lot of different colors and combined them in one bowl and mixed it together.  I then poured that over the glue tape and spread it around.  It's kind of hard to see in the picture but it turned out better than I thought.  It also catches the light in every angle.  Reminds me of the flashes of camera, so, I'm happy.  :)

For the rims I used the i-Top brads without the tops attached.  I thought it looked more like car rims. 

Be sure to head on over to Glora's to check out what she made using this cut.  I can't wait to see it myself!  :)
