...another Vintage Ride?

Yup! But look at the variety! I've featured an airplane and bicycle, today a car...I used Scarlet cardstock and a free download (Black/White) from The Angel Company for this super simple card.

Here's a fun idea to try...I've always loved the frame stamps I've seen from other companies and then Mischelle, the owner of The Angel Company, shared her version of it - and it's free! Our stamps come with a border around them so she carefully cut everything out and saved the outside frame to use it as a design element. How cool is that?



I colored the car with Copics and left that wide open space until I mail it. I think I will use part of the saying, "Zooming by to say HI" and leave off the "HI" and stamp "Happy Birthday" in the inside. I know already which little guy will get this card...he does love his cars!!

PS. Join us for a Blog Hop over at The Angel Company this weekend...we're featuring Spotlight as a technique. How fun...I'd better get busy! :)
