You're a Classic

'Things with Wheels' is the next challenge  at Sugar Creek Hollow.
 Our sponsor for this challenge  Doodle Pantry gave us some super images to use.
I  have used this great vintage car which went so well with the quote.
As you can see I made a simple  twisted easel shaped card.
 The background house and gardens was an image I had on my computer from a project made  ages ago.
Vintage photo distress ink helped the aged look around the distressed and torn edges.
I printed out an extra car image which I fussy cut before painting with water colours, it was raised on thin foam pads to give a bit of depth.

Please pop over for all the details and see what we have all been making.
Also thank you for stopping by to see my take on the theme.
