Grandson's Card and some excitement for me

I'm very excited I've been invited to join the Poodles Parlour design team I can't believe they want me. I also got two top threes, one at Crafts 4 Eternity and the other at Whoopsy Daisy again that must be my lucky place as first time I entered their challenge I won the random prize. Thank you both so much for picking my card for a top three.

I'll stop waffling now and show you my Grandson's birthday card.
This is a LOTV stamp coloured again with my Prismas and Zest-it.
The papers are from Nitwits Diggers and Dozers set.
The sentiment I made on the computer.
I kept the card simple as the papers are bright and I wanted the image to stand out. Our Albert is only 2 but he scoots with the best of them, he has the same scooter as his older brothers no 3 wheeler for him.
I hope to enter this in the following challenges:

My Heart Pieces  Designer Paper
Whoopsy Daisy  Diecut or Punches
Creative Inspirations  Anything goes
Paper Crafting Journey Anything goes
Cutie Pie Challenge  Spots and Stripes
Willow Sketchie Challenge Warm colours
Thanks for popping by I love it when you leave me a comment
