A Couple Details:
- I've seen many people incorporate calendars into their cards to commemorate the day/date, so when I flipped to this My Mind's Eye paper, I was inspired. I circled the 13th for a personalized touch. I also added some brads and Frayed Burlap Distress Stickles to accent the design.
- Everything is stamped in Timber Brown StazOn. This is important because I used Distress Stains to color the car (no smearing with StazOn!). I also used a white Glaze pen on the car to add highlights to chrome and glass areas. More MME papers form some "racing stripes". I accented the HB square with Glossy Accents.
- When the car and racing stripes were in place, the layout needed a little something at the top right, so I fussy cut this banner element from MME paper, added a little color with Distress stains, added some twine to one side, and Frayed Burlap Distress Stickle dots between each pennant. I like the "car lot" affect that the banner adds.
