55 Chev.

Hi, this is a card I made for my brother for his birthday. He loves old cars and has spent many years building his pink 55 Chev. The base of the car is made with the Top Note die and clear embossed, adding a bit of dazzling diamonds while still hot. To give it a metallic look, just like my brothers car.
Challenge #26 this week at Just Add Ink is Just Add Embossing, so this card fits in well for the challenge.

The photo's not great but you can kind of get the idea.


This card was inspired by a swap I received at Convention by Kaylene Schultz. Unfortunately I have been unable to find a blog or web site for her.
