CD Sunday - A Is For...

...Automobile. The challenge this week on the CD Sunday is A is for and I've chosen Automobiles. I picked this image, which is from Joanna Sheen's Nostalgia CD, as it is my son's birthday next week and I had to make a card for my MIL to send to him. Although he will not be old enough to remember cars like these, he works for a small garage, called Stoner Racing, and will be spending this weekend working in the pits at Silverstone at their race days, so it seemed very appropriate. I've used a 8x8 cream card base and the backing paper is from Sue Smiths Stripe and Co. I went around the edge with a little walnut stain distress ink before sticking it to the base. Next I added some cogs cut from a spellbinders die set. I've used a brown card and rust card for matting the image onto and finished by adding the sentiment.

Thank you for taking the time to look. Your kind comments are always appreciated.

Hi Sue, this is a great image and so fitting for your grandson's birthday. This is one CD I don't have but I keep seeing so many lovely images I may add to my ever growing collection.
I love your die cuts, they work well with your card design.

Hi Sue ! Awesome & Rich Card for "A" and great for your Son. Masculine creations are the toughest (I think) but this one is perfect. Beautiful design as always :)

I hope the day went as well as it can in the circumstances and the traffic wasn't too horrible. Take care, Shirleyx
