Birthday VW

I stamped and fussy cut this image ages ago and decided to do something with it today.
I used Prismacolor pencils and the gamsol technique to colour it.

We used to have an old VW this colour when my boys were babies. It was too difficult to get 2 kids into child seats in the back so we had to sell it. I remember it fondly though and since I usually smile when I see a VW I'm going to link up to the challenge at Cuttlebug Mania where the theme is "to make us smile". Hope I'm not stretching the things too far!

At Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge the theme is anything goes.
At Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge the team is celebrating their 5th year of challenges and want to see happy birthday creations.

I'm also linking to a couple of  challenges that are new to me.
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge, where the theme is all about travel, and
The Crafting Cafe where it's one for the boys.

Edited to add: I'm also linking to Paper Crafting Challenge, where the current theme is masculine, thanks for the info Kimberly :)

Materials used:
Stamps: Deep Red VW; Art Impressions aged to perfection.
Embossing Folders: Tiny Bubbles  & Heavy Duty.
Birthday sentiment sticker from stash.

Thanks for visiting, 
Cathy x
