Vintage Auto

Wow, this one really got me outa my comfort zone! What a fun image! This is an August New Release from Doodle Pantry. If you haven't checked out this month's HUGE release, head over and spend a few minutes shopping!


This is called Vintage Auto. It's colored with Copics, and sponged with Tim Holtz Distress Inks. Used a small Nestie under the sentiment, cutting off the ends so there is only a top and bottom design. Ribbon loop from my scrap drawer, and Tim Holtz Tiny Stapler to hold it on the card.


Love the image, but not happy with my card. Thank goodness tomorrow is another day! Another opportunity!!!!


Have a great day!
Patti J.

Food for thought: You will never face a problem that is not bursting with opportunity!
