Wheels are turnin'...

I don't use wheels too much -- have a ton of 'em... but rarely pull them out. It could be because they're in a box and "out of sight" so not as easy to access, but I bought Matey's Map awhile back and finally got the urge to use it in this boys' birthday card. I used the gifts from Loads of Love accessories to cover up the Treasure Box and put the focus on birthday. It was a very fun card to create. To draw attention to the gifts I used the two circle punches to create a "rim" to circle the gifts with.
Stamps - Matey's Map Jumbo Wheel & Loads of Love Accessories
Paper - More Mustard, Real red, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip
Ink - Brilliance Graphite Black
Extras - Copic Markers, Circle Punches, Ribbon bits (SU), Cuttlebug & emobossing folder, sewing machine.
My posts have been a little delayed these days as we've been getting our flooring put in... yeah! and birthday week. We're in a real mess here too ... so finding quiet moments has proved challenging :)

What a great idea! I LOVE the ring! I haven't purchased any wheels yet. I have really been wanting them though. I think that will be on my next order! Thanks so much for sharing. This card is so neat!
