Just 4U

Good evening all, let's see what sort of a mess I manage to make of tonight's post. I seem to end up with a different result every time and  I must admit to getting more than a little downhearted with it all. Before I get on to my card tonight,I'd like to say how disappointed I am to not be able to post comments at the moment I visit lots of blogs and like to leave some love,there really are some amazingly talented crafters about. I don't know about you but I'm getting fed up with Blogger's antics,the amount of times I sign in,trying to post comments and only succeeding occasionally,it's a right pain.
Anyway,enough of the moaning and on to tonight's card. I found a 5" square of scrummie floral paper that I've been looking at for ages and up until now, just couldn't bring myself to use, the only product info left said "FlipFlops".I thought that this looked just the thing to use with one of  Gayle Bond's new car digi images.

I  used the paper as it was for the centre of the card,matted it onto purple and then onto the pink front panel of my card i was able to cut 4 part flowers from the leftovers to position onto the pink,disguising that they weren't complete flowers with clever          placing. The frame I cut using Nesties and placed in the centre of the card using foam pads. I then punched some tiny flowers to        match the papers. The image I coloured using Copics,cut out and    placed some acetate cut from packaging to serve as the windscreen. I then shaped the car and placed this using foam pads.I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
DDSB60,Anything goes,
PCJ11,Favourite anything,(floral paper)
Paper Play 21,Blossoms and blooms,
ABC Challenge,V is for violet,

How very clever you are! The flower power paper is totally 'peaced out man' with the VW! All we need now is 'to teach the world to perfect harmony...'
