My daughter just bought herself her white Harley after paying the last of her student loans. I did the bike yesterday but was not happy with it. When I saw the color block challenge today I thought I'd go with it. Not sure if this qualifies since there is really no color. The bike is Elizabeth Craft sticker attached to white cardstock with Sookwang tape. Glitter Ritz was burnished on to it and colored with copics. The background is various pieces of Shimmer Sheetz which were embossed and inked up with copic refills and alcohol, then sanded. Elizabeth Craft borders were used to make it a bit girly. I was happily surprised that I could emboss Happy Birthday over the glitter. Rivets were added to keep with the motorcycle theme. Thanks for a fun challenge!

Wow, looks like a lot of work went into this card. I don't know about the color, but you certainly got the blocking in this creation. All that silver bling really fits with the Harley. Wonderful job.

I say this is definitely color blocking and quite a nice card using this technique! Love all the silver, embossing and the girly sparkles! Your daughter will love this card! My DH rides a Harley.....I need to get a motorcycle stamp just for him~

WOW, Nancy, you took "color blocking" to a whole other level with the metallic look and embossing. Great card with the motorcycle image and all the "gearhead" details. The metallic silver was a GREAT choice.

This is really one neat card! Into my favs. Love all the elements how they relate to the cool image. It's always so nice to hear when a young person finishes paying those student loans....she deserved to treat herself. Thanks for playing in the challenge.
