Busy Bug

I made this card for my best friend. I hope to visit her next month. I haven't seen her in years and years. We've both been very busy living in different states and raising our kids. I promised her that I'd drive all the way up to see her if I had to. Even if it means 14 hours in a car with 2 kids with no DVD player. Oh the horror! But she is definitely worth it.

I thought this card was too busy with the patterned paper and then I paper pieced the car. I played around and even used a copic colored car instead but it just didn't look right. So I'm not thrilled with this but I'm hoping my friend will be.

Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps
Ink: Memento black
Paper: October Afternoon, PTI Hawaiian Shores & Summer Sunrise, Raspberry Fizz Dots Patterned Paper
Misc: PTI Raspberry Fizz Satin Ribbon, PTI Lemon Tart button, PTI Cream Twine, pop dots, acetate for windshield


  1. I like it! It's busy but not TOO busy--it's just bright and fun. I know your friend will love it!
