A car for my DD's 16th birthday!!!

My second post of the day!  I've spent my time in my cool craft room instead of out in the heat today! :)

Our oldest will be 16 later this month!  (They grow too fast!!!)  She loves all things British and wants a Mini Cooper, so I'm giving her one... a paper one!! :)  All the goodies I used on this card came from a blog friend in England!  Anne-Marie sent me some wonderful items when she heard my DD loved England!  Thank you again, Anne-Marie, and I hope you like what you see!   I know my daughter will LOVE this!!!

challenges...
The Sweet Stop: SSS165 - sketch (I did not do any stamping so not sure if this counts, but when I saw the sketch, I knew it would be perfect for this card!!)
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards #16 - anything goes (cards only)


Here you can see how I popped the layers...

Thanks for stopping by!!  And if you know me, remember to keep it a surprise that she is getting a car!!!  LOL

Your DD will love this card! This little Mini Cooper is a lot more affordable and just as cute. The colors and border strip make this one British looking card! Thanks for joining us at The Sweet Stop this week, Debbie!

Wonderful 'British' card, at least from my Canadian eyes, love the Union Jack strip behind the frame holding the card, the red, white and blue colours and best of all the Mini Cooper!

How fun is this! The minis with the flag on the roof always seem like the "real" minis to me :) 16 - how time flies.
