Car Journey

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Feel a whole lot better now that my hair has been cut, I have natural curly hair and as it was growing it started to do it's own thing!  LOL

We are supposed to be having a heat wave coming our way from this weekend until August.  Fingers crossed that the weather man actually got it right!  I am sick of this wet weather now!

Here is today's card, there are quite a few challenges for Red, White and Blue and this is what I have made.


1. 6 x 6 white square card which I have matted and layered red and blue card onto and wrapped twine around before adhering.
2. The map stamp is from IndigoBlu which I have gilded with silver gilding flakes, I distressed around the edges and inked in red around the edges.
3.  The car is from Visible Image which I have stamped and embossed with WOW embossing powder then rubbed gilding wax over to give the shine.
4. To finish off I have added Card Candy.

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxx

I really like your card... the simplicity of the layout and yet the details of your technique make it quite creative! I am delighted you entered your project in the “In the Garden” Challenge - good luck!

I am so sorry Linda - I made a mistake above - I need to welcome you to the "Red, White and Blue" Challenge at Craft Your Passion - not "In the Garden". You are in the right place!
