Transport - Eclectic Ellapu Challenge

Happy Friday! Oh, wait, it's Thursday... well close enough in my book since I have tomorrow off. My lovely cousin is coming into town and she's going to spend the weekend with me! 
This post is going to be quick and dirty, because once again I have procraftinated and I have like 2 minutes to post this. So I'm sorry for the brevity!

Over at Eclectic Ellapu, our new monthly challenge has started. The Pink team is bringing you creations with the theme of "Transport" and the Purple team is bringing you creations with the theme of "Favorite Holiday".

Since I happen to be on the Pink team, my card features a vintage car from the STAMPlorations Enjoy the Ride set:



I've added in a bunch of hand-drawn swirly dos, some grungy stamps (Mixed Media Grunge from STAMPlorations), some splatters and little arrow bits from a Heidi Swapp collection. 

I've used the awesome sketch from the Paper Players.

I'm also going to send it over to:
Cardz 4 Guyz - Somethign beginning with B (blue car)
Addicted to Stamps and More - Anything Goes

As for you! Well you should head over to Eclectic Ellapu and play along with us!

  8. Looks just like a 1957 Chevy Bel-Air, which you are too young to remember. But the card evokes a myriad of memories for me. New white leather smells, push button radios and beautiful two-toned, shiny cars. Your color is even right. Kudos on you, girl. This is a great card.

  20. Very cool card, Becca! That car brings back memories from the "olden days", or as one granddaughter calls it, the "back times," lol! Love the bright blue color. The arrows and the washi really finish off your card perfectly. Just wonderful. Happy 4th. Bev

  31. Love all the grungy-ness of this fabulous masculine card, Becca!!! Your hand-drawn swirly do's really look great - no way I can try to add anything by hand to a card - not artistic at all, here!!!!!! This is really beautiful and I love all the great detail!!!
