What's More Vintage than a 50's car?

The theme this week over at the Whimsical Wednesday Challenge is Vintage.  I thought about this long and hard.  Which way to go? A vintage woman in long, flowing gown, old fashioned looking papers, plenty of lace? Or, something fun and bright?  Maybe it's all the rainy weather  we've been having, but I wanted fun and bright, so I went with a vintage car themed project.


 

I used two Whimsical Designs stamp sets on this card -- Everyday Sentiments for the license plate "Woo! Hoo!" - so cute! (maybe I should get that on MY license plate)

and the Whimsical Fun vol. 1 stamp set for the "live out loud" sentiment.  It's perfect for the grill of this hotrod, don't you think?  I cut this car out on my Silhouette.  The file is from the Silhouette store, found here.  I used Echo Park Happy Day's papers in both 12x12 and 6x6. The heart shaped bling is from my stash.
That's it for me, but please, spend some time on the Whimsical Designs blog leaving a comment, then visit my design team sisters.  They're an amazing group of ladies and I am VERY proud to be a part of this team!
