College Bound

This is my second post of the day.  For my Waltzingmouse Blog Party card, please click here.

This week's Make Monday #53 is all about Creative Coasters.  I used a coaster to cut out the adorable car from Enjoy the Ride.  Then, I cut some Aqua Mist paper, adhered the two together and then completely saturated it in Perfect Pearls mist.  In real life, this car is VERY shiny. This card is going to my niece, who is eagerly awaiting the remainder of her college acceptances.  She's gotten enough so she knows she will be going somewhere, not enough to make a final decision.

Supplies Used (PTI);
Stamps:  Enjoy the Ride, Background Basics Circles, Polka Dot Basics, Think Big Favorites
Paper:  Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, Pure Poppy
Other:  Dies:  Enjoy the Ride, Mat Stack 4 Layerz, Pinking Edger

Thanks for visiting
