Well, do I need to explain this???!!!!! LOL!!!!!
Emily, a/k/a scoopy, is our Featured Stamper. Congratulations Emily. I loved looking through your CAS gallery. You have many gorgeous cards, but of course, I chose your very FIRST upload, Going Places, seen here:
I kept the vehicle theme & the basic colors. As soon as I saw your card, I knew what stamp I was using! No, I don't have a red bug anymore (boohoo) & I actually grieved for that car for years, but it always had a flower in the vase & I could not resist using that flower ribbon. I changed the stamp, the orientation, the ribbon, no senti & rounded the corners for that aerodynamic feel!! I loaded the stamp w/ Versamark, then Real Red & clear embossed. I punched the wheels using the 3/4" & 1/2" circle punches. The flower is the MS hydrangea punch.
I hope you enjoy your time in the spotlight and that you like my version of your card.

I see we both posted red bugs today Karen! And I don't have my red bug anymore either. For a long time after I sold mine, I wished I hadn't... But I still have fond memories of my first car. What a cute card - of course I love it! And you managed to get some punching in on it too! RYPH :)

Karen, that was going to be my first question...asking if this was your car.
This is just the cutest...I need a little VW convertible to sport around in. LOL Love your little punched flower and the ribbon is perfect. Had to have those flowers with the doodle bug. :) Love your fun card.

What a sweet card. I have had my share of VW "bugs" and "buses" over the years. What fun. Just like this card. Well done. TFS :0)
