WMSC79 and CR84FN45 and Moxie Fab

 Well folks, I decided to do another card for my brother-in-law's birthday.  The thing is, while he is a car nut, I have made so many car themed cards for him that he is probably getting tired of them.  So I decided to focus on his other obsession:  Sudoku.  Also made the card for the WMSC79 and CR84FN45 and Moxie Fab Cool Tools Punches challenges.  Here is the card, then I'll tell you how I made it:


First, the Sudoku sheets:  the square grid background from Off Beat Backgrounds was used on white paper, and punched out with a 1 1/4" square punch.  The extra lines on the edges were "whited out" with a white gel pen.  Then I used a Copic multiliner pen to add the numbers (from real Sudoku puzzles).  The orange and yellow starred panel was made by punching stars out of the orange strip (SU Only Orange) and inserting punched out yellow (SU Yoyo Yellow) stars.  The blue strips are SU Ballet Blue.  Sentiment is provided by the Say It Loud set, and I added a brass star to the Sudoku stack.  The tiny orange dots were applied using a Sakura opaque gel pen.

I think he'll like it, for variety if for no other reason.

See ya!
