Happy Birthday El Gordo.

Morning - Todays post for Dr Digi DT is using El Gordo
I made this card for a friend we met whilst on holiday years ago in Mexcio and yesterday we went to his surprise 40th Birthday party. Where else can you find that perfect image !! He also loves his cars so the retro black and white car paper was a great combo.

The coloured papers are from Carta Bella Circus Party collection -the yellow paper is called Banners and Turquoise paper called Tickets. The car paper is from Crate Paper I think (I have cut the bottom of??) I used the Die-namics party banner die cut and star nestibilities to cut the red Bazzill card and used Doodlebug white letters to add the numbers and letters. The Happy Birthday is from Pebbles and I cut the end off to make it fit a little better. 

I used these promarkers & flexmarkers to colour the image - 
Skin - Spice, Coral, Soft peach, Blush & Antique White
Boots & gloves - Pastel Green, Oasis & Island Lagoon.
Cape & knee pads - Cool Grey 1, 3, 4 & 5.
Tights & hood - Primrose, Lemon, Summer Sun & Gold.
Cape - Red, Poppy & Ruby.
Edged in Icicle.
