Oldie but goodie....

Hello all!
I'm back in my hometown on the other side of the Atlantic for a couple of weeks and I'm definitely feeling the change in temperature! I think I've got used to those hot and humid summer temperatures of New Jersey :)   Never mind, we're due some sunshine here later on in the week.
       Just a quick posting as I've got a play date with 2 little girls today and I need to lose the jetlag pretty quickly in order to keep up with them :)

                                   My card today is done using one of the digis drawn by Mr LPS (I'm not sure he'd appreciate me calling him Mr LilyPinkScraps so I thought I'd abbreviate it!).  I've mentioned before that he's a bit keen on most things automotive and he does have a real love of American Classics - this card was made with his latest digi for my Etsy shop.

 
 
     I merged the digi with some digital brushes using Adobe PSE and printed it on some neutral deigner cardstock - the sentiment was done using my Dymo labeller. This is such a detailed digi that it stands alone extremely well without any colouring at all, making a very quick and easy card!
 
     I would like to put this into the following challenges - http://cardsformen.blogspot.co.uk/ (going digital), http://hookedoncraftchallenges.blogspot.co.uk/ (cards for men), http://www.vostamps.blogspot.co.uk/ (things with wheels), http://creativecraftchallenges2.blogspot.co.uk/ (all about the boys).
 
 
Thanks for stopping by :)

This is such a great vintage looking card - love how you combined elements - has a wonderful look. How fun to make a card from something your DH (Mr. LPS - LOL) designed - that must be a thrill! Have fun over there and with the girls. Hugz!
