The Details of My Card

For my card, I coloured Ellie with my Copic markers to match my Seventies paper and her retro bus! This paper was perfect for my card with the musical revolution icons since Ellie has her dancing boots on and is off to Woodstock!

Of course, if Ellie is having a road trip, she needs a retro bus. This Retro Bus Kit comes with dies to build a mini booklet in the shape of a retro bus, but I decided to use it for my card. So, I just trimmed the three ring holes off the back piece. I had a ton of fun decorating my bus with the matching paper, flowers, peace symbol, windshield wipers, Road Trip die and so on. I even used a piece of a window sheet for the windows. For the metal parts, I brushed on some iron wax to give them a metal look.

The finishing touches were some wooden musical notes to match my theme a couple of rhinestone coloured to match my card.
