Non-Traditional Valentine

Made for Friday's Limited Supplies Challenge and with a friend in mind! LOL! Ok, a small story behind it...I have a recently divorced friend who's taken her freedom quite litteral and she's been "dating" around...well I thought this would be a perfect Valentine OR even a congrats? oh her divorce?! Anyways, she has my sense of humor...so I know this wont offend her. We're twisted like that!

I really like the outcome of this card because it came straight from my head without looking at the gallery for the challenge to get ideas...I'm trying to get out of that phase and just be original! I stamped the images onto watercolor paper because I get crisper coloring with no ugly streaks to mess up the images. Color was sponged around the edges because just plain looked boring. I dug thru scraps and found a large sheet of this DP...I believe it's from Figgy Pudding...but then again I could be wrong since it doesn't have a name to it. I went to the reliable Chocolate Chip CS to match flawlessly with the, "I wish they never retired", Cool Carribean. Edges were scalloped using a corner rounder punch by removing the "feet". Scalloped sentiment is popped up on dimensionals. Tires and car "detail" colored in with silver Pilot marker. Thanks for looking!
