My Aunt's VW Bug....

Hi there!  I made this card using the new release from The Stamps Of Life, Cars2drive.  The moment I saw the VW Bug image, I knew I wanted to paper piece it in some yellow paper and make a card for my aunt.  Her birthday is not until July, but I will save it for her.
When I was a little girl, my aunt drove a bright yellow bug.  I remember how much I loved that car and how cool I thought it was as a child.  Being one of three sisters, my parents had a woody station wagon.  I was in awe that she had a tiny little car much less a bright yellow one!
I pieced the car with DP from Lily Bee.  I used some silver smooch to paint the fenders and bumper, and added some silver half pearls to the center of the hub caps.

Thanks for stopping by!
