Pride and joy

   This image from the Lili of the Valley stamp called 'pride and joy' reminds me of when I first met my brother in-law. He had a yellow sports car which he kept polishing with his handkerchief! I coloured it using Promarkers and metallic gel pens. I also added Stickles to the star on the bonnet. I then matted and layered it onto three different shades of green core'dinations cardstock.
    For the card background I matted and layered paper from Wild Rose's Man About Town paper pack onto two shades of the core'dinations cardstock and white card. The grey vertical strips are the 'waste' from core'dination packs. I have added silver card candi and a sentiment to these.
