The British are coming!!!

Hello all!
Hope you all had a great weekend, whatever you got up to.  We went to see some 'punkin chunkin' today - we're trying to do as much of the American experience as possible and sometimes the cheesier, weirder and odder, the better! 
     We had first seen this on the Discovery Channel and it basically involves a bunch of folk building a machine that will hurl a pumpkin as far as possible.  What more could you want from a gloriously sunny Fall afternoon?  It was pretty good and that's another check off the list :)

    Anyway, on to the card.  After an American themed day, I have a British themed card (go figure!)  I have been doing some subway art canvas creations and had some vinyl lettering left over from using my Cameo.  With a neutral cardstock and the addition of a couple of stickers, I came up with a sort of subway art card - nice and simple and ideal for a guy card which always seems to be a harder thing to come up with.
 
How very jolly and rather super!

 
I would like to enter this into the following Anything Goes challenges -

Fantastic masculine card. Love it and I'm sure some man in your life will to. You have such great ideas. I'm an Elvis fan but my brother is the biggest Beetles fan ever.

Dawn, Can you believe on that Discovery Channel when these crazy people build those crazy machine that will hurl the pumpkin as far as possible. What more could you want after all would that not be your favorite pastime. Great guy's card and I love the British themed card. great job.
Hugs, Patricia

Beatles, Rolling Stones... who is it????? LOL You sure did sum up Britain pretty well on this card Dawn. You've really become a pro with that Silhouette. Glad you're having fun with it. Hugs!

Dawn, so edgy and cool! I love the look of this card. I have been debating on the Silhouette and this makes me lean more toward it. How fun you went to a pumpkin chunkin or whatever you called it. I think crazy stuff like this is great. Makes me laugh at what your memories of America are going to be! Hugz!!!
