StampersBest ~ Classic VW Bus ~ I "heart" my DAD card

The sketch challenge on the OWH Stars & Stamps Blog for this week was posted yesterday... I have looked at it and looked at it and wasn't sure what I would do with it for a card. With the arrival of some new goodies from StampersBest today.. I thought I'd use one of the images I got.. a Classic VW Bus. I think that my family had one of these when we were stationed in Germany many, many years ago.. I say "think" because I can't remember, but I have some memory of one so we must have. UPDATE: my dad has told me that we did have one.

Here is what I came up with:

Here is the sketch layout:

For this card I used: stamps: StampersBest Classic VW Bus use code: airbornewife at checkout to save 10% on your order. Hero Arts stamp I "heart" my DAD
card stock: Neenah Cayon Brown 100# cover, Cajun Craze, White, JillieBean pattern paper
ink: Memento brown
accessories: brads, paper piercer, scallop border punch, brads and dimensionals

thanks for looking ~

have a great airborne day!
God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them

Great card and love the vintage image! And yes, I am old enough to remember these VW buses! I think I rode in one when my car broke down and my friends and I hitch-hiked to Berkley ;)

Fantastic! I love the brads on each scallop.

I agree with Yolanda - the brads on the scallops are a great finishing touch. I remember those VW buses, too. :)
