CR84FN Challenge

Happy Hellos Everyone:

Something Old -- Something New  -- Something Borrowed -- Something Pink??? Well, actually, something black, pink, and cream. It's been a while, at least it feels that  way. I hope all is well with you. Things have been ongoing for me. During the past couple of weeks I have created a few card, but I just have not had an opportunity to load them up for you to see. Life seems to always get in the way of the fun stuff. ;) Today, I am submitting the card below in this week's challenge over at CR84FN and I wanted to share it with you.

Below is the inspiration photo... Isn't it just fabulous? The color combination has a classic feel to it. Perhaps something from the fifties or the sixities. Whatever it is, I love it!




...and this is what I drew from the inspirational photo....








Okay, let me tell you what I did and what I used to achieve this effect. My stamped image and text are from PTI. Also from PTI is my medium scallop die. A couple of weeks ago, I picked up a little bling and some pearls by Recollections from Micheals Arts & Crafts with my gift cards I recieved at my birthday crop last month and the fabulous studded ribbon. As you can see I highlighted the Volkswagon headlights with a little bling. The rhinstone on your right gives the illusion that the headlights are on. I'm not sure whether you noticed the 'congratulations' sentiment has been popped out with the use of dimenissionals. I guest you can assume the happy couple is driving off into an what looks like a baked Alaskan. I love the white embossed paper from ANW Crestwood, but to keep in-line with the challenge criteria, I highlighted the embossed DP with a Copic marker.
I hope you liked what you saw and perhaps it has inspired you in some way. Thanks for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery and come back real soon.
