A VINTAGE VEE DUB ...

this is a  v dub beetle ...


My hubby's family were crazy about VW's - each of them owned one of these at some stage of their lives, and most of them graduated to Kombi's too.  I even drove the Kombi when I was 9 months pregnant with our oldest ...

Here is a card I made for my hubby (I will keep it for his birthday on 7 December) . The image is one from Pattie's Creations, and I coloured it using alcohol markers

The windscreen glass was achieved by 'Glossy Accents' and the headlamp glass is also 'Glossy Accents'  over shiny crystal glitter glue while it was still wet (can you see that in the pic below?)


The sentiment is computer generated (by me) using MS Word

Why Monochromatic ..... It's for Pattie's Creations latest Challenge
Why CAS ..... It's for The Outlawz Sunday CAS challenge

I would like to add this card to the following challenge too:
