I Admire Your Drive

Hello, I am having a good day in my craft room although I should be cleaning my house. One of my cards I made today I used this stamp from Stamping Bella called I admire your drive.  I have made this card for the Dynamic Duoschallenge (DD#2). The colours of the challenge are Saffron and Pool Party, a very nice soft colour palette.

I used a Stampin Up flower stamp with inks the colours of the challenge to create the background papers and my Copics to colour the image.  Once I had the card together I added some ribbon, Diamond Glaze on the headlights and bling to finish the card off.

Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day.
