Ride with me

Good morning everyone

Friday at last..... I am planning an exciting road trip tomorrow..... Can't wait. I'll share where I have been and what I have been doing soon.

Today's card is another Anniversary card, this time for my parents. Many, many years ago my dad had a Vesper and my parents did some of their courting and spent some of their eary married life on the Vesper so when I saw this stamp I knew exactly what I could use it for.
The stamp is called Ride with me and is from LOTV. I stamped onto Neenah crest card and coloured with Spectrum Noir pens and pencils plus a little Sparkle pen- 

  • skin - FS2, FS4, TN2, CR1 and 089
  • boy's hair - IG7, IG10, true black and 120
  • girl's hair - GB8, GB10, EB5 and 104
  • boy's clothes - GB7, GB8, GB10, IG2, IG3, IG4, IG5, EB5, 104 and 116
  • girl's clothes - BP2, PP6, DR6, IG6, IG7, IG8, 119 and 030
  • scooter - GT2, GT3, IG1, IG3, IG4, blender, IG7, IG9, IG10, 120, 052, 116 and crystal clear sparkle pen
  • ground - BG1, BG3 and 109
  • sky - IB1

I have also used - 

  • pick n mix paper pad from First Edition
  • Woodware Happy Anniversary stamp
  • Die-namics stitched circle STAX
  • Die-namics cross stitched rectangle STAX
  • ribbon from my stash

The ribbon has come out a different shade for some reason but it did match the card (honest!!)

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges - - add a sentiment - anniversaries and special occasions
