Happy birthday AAA cards challenge blog!

Today marks the 2nd anniversary of one of my favorite blogs, I don't rank them, the ones I take part in are my favorites ;-)
So Happy Birthday AAA cards Challenge and here's to  many more years of fabulous challenges!.

I did the treasure hunt this morning, that was fun! On the email I said my entry would have to wait as I was about to leave for my mother's birthday and at least would have a few hours to ponder on my card....tsss I just made a birthday card for my mother! seriously it was early ;-)

Anyway Happy birthday to my mother as well and here's the card I made:
My mother drives one of those scooter things for old/disabled people, we call them scootmobiel, not sure about the English name.
Anyway I thought it would be funny and she laughed when se open the card (phew).
The image is from Art Impression (full throttle) and is actually a spinner card set, so it also has the back in the package and a sentiment (live life full throttle) which I stamped on the inside.

The sentiment is from Impression Obsession and is new and my favorite at the moment as I love the font and if it's written with chalk.

I used My Favorite Things black licorice hybrid ink to stamp it all and watercolored it with Distress inks. My mom's scoot thing is red and then I chose colors to go well with the red and it kind of turned out like the image on the package, which was not intentional.
The dog is from Simon Says Stamp (beautiful ride) and I stamped him with Memento and colored him with Spectrum Noir markers. My mom's dog has to sit in the basket. I used the coordinating die to cut him out.
Made a slit in the basket and stuck the dog in and some paper flowers. I just pictured my mom coming back from the market.
the Schut hot pressed watercolor panel is slightly smaller so I filled the gap with gold glitter tape and adhered the panel with foamtape.
