You Lead - IFALO

This is a card that I've created for the fun challenge over at Card Crafter's Circle - To die for using die cuts (machine or handcut).  I had the opportunity to use Limited Runs - car image! Since it was my "engagement anniversary" this past weekend I made this for my husband who asked me to marry him 16 years ago on the 11th.  I'm a firm believer that the man leads and the woman follows so I thought I'd just remind my husband that I'm still following.
For this card I coloured and cut out this fun little car and used crystal laquer to create a shine for the window and the tail lights.  I matted this to some textured cardstock matching the card base.  I layered this over a map that I cut from some patterned paper I got at the dollar store and added some distress ink (Tim Holtz - old paper) and crinkled the paper up a bit. Since that is what maps usually go through!  I cut it out with a frame template from Lily of the Valley and added it to the layers of patterned paper from Forever in Time.  For my die cuts I used a Spellbinders scalloped oval die in two sizes for the sentiment.  I then added the rest IFALO to the licence plate on the car.  It still needed some thing else so I added some great screw brads from Forever in Time!
It's fun to play with dies, there is such a huge variety out there so pull them out and come join us at the Card Crafter's Circle this week! Limited Runs is offering up a wonderful prize of three digis!
