Christmas Card Challenge #35 - Anything Goes!

The challenge over at Christmas Card Challenges is an Anything Goes challenge!  Woohoo!  Time to put your thinking caps on and create whatever you choose (as long as it's holiday related, of course!).
 
I saw this car stamp sitting on my table just waiting to be used.  I don't know what it was doing there, but it wanted to be inked up!  I stamped it on watercolor paper and used Distress inks to color the image.  I added Glossy Accents to the windows and bumpers, then Wink of Stella shimmer to the tree and car.  It was fussy cut out (no die for this older stamp!).  I added the washi tape and sentiment (which I thought was perfect for this image) then used some embossing paste through this new stencil on the background.  It sort of reminded me of snowflakes.  When dry, I added the image on dimensionals.
 
I followed this week's Freshly Made Sketches but flipped it around because of the way the image was facing.
 
The girls over at Christmas Card Challenge have some great inspiration for you!  Take a look here.
