Another card made using my Nostalgia papers and ephemera from Emerald City Crafts UK

I used this sketch by Milo

Step by Step

1. 7 x 7 white square card base.
2. Matted and layered brown patterned paper, strips of Kraft card and patterned blue patterned paper from the kit, all distressed with DI vintage photo.
3. Adhered the small car photo to the top of each strip.
4. Adhered the ephemera with foam pads.
5. Die cut the card and cogs using blue card and adhered with PVA.
6. To finish off added the sentiment.
