AAA Cards Challenge #156 with video

The AAA Cards Challenge this fortnight  is a sketch with the optional twist of Winter birthday.
At first I wanted to make the card exactly like the sketch, with snowflakes. but I switched to digi stamps from our Sponsor Crafty scrappers and mice from a friend ( I think they are Stampin up).

For my card I masked off a strip on my kraft cardbase and applied Distress Oxides, I wanted to stamp the sentiment on the strip, but I also wanted splatters, so I decided to go for splatters and  Stamped the sentiment underneath. The stamp is from Simon Says Stamp Brithday 3x4 set and I've used Versamark ink and Wow white opaque bright white embossing powder.

I colored the car with Spectrum Noir markers and mounted it with foamtape.
To keep layers to a  minimal I made the  strip on the cardbase and instead of putting a kraft layer on a white base I've used an all kraft cardstock. I glued the mice flush to the cardbase and used them as my embellishments.
