My eldest daughter goes to a special school and gets collected from home by a taxi. Her escort is just the loveliest woman ever and I wanted to make her a card to say thank you for everything during the year.

I only have one car image, my new Papertrey stamp and die set. Woohoo - I love when I get to use something for a legitimate cause. Most of the time I simply buy stamps and embellishments because I like them, when they turn out to be perfect for a particular project too, well that is just a bonus.

LOVE the new Papertrey dies - they cut like butter. I have used the car and clouds dies ... and am also using this card for the Passion for Papertrey challange. It's all good.

To give the clouds some detail I used the lightest cool grey Copic marker on the bottom for a little shading. Coloured the car with copics too.

Love that lace - I bought this from John Lewis the other day and just want to put it on everything.


  1. Fab card, I'm sure she will love it! I love Papertrey Ink, I just wish they would sell wholesale so that more people over here could get their hands on them :)

  2. I love it when I can justify a crafty purchase too! ;D
    I think you can well and truly say you NEEDED both the PTI set and die after this fabulous creation. I love all the detail you've added to bring the scene to life - stunning!
    Thanks so much for joining in with us on A Passion for Papertrey!

  3. Great call on the stamps and die Lousette, I love your card, such a fabulous scene! Thank you for joining our challenge! Kate xx
