Kraftyhands Tag Challenge

Kraftyhands are releasing a new Mens Vintage Motors Double CD full of vintage cars, in a few weeks time. The delightful Linda, the design team leader, has challenged us, the design team, to make a tag using the backing papers and images from this CD. I have made my tag using, car parts paper, which I have distressed on the edges, with my Tim Holtz inks. The cogs are Spellbinders dies. My next challenge is to get my cards made with this CD, ready to be displayed at the Craft Fairs.
Kraftyhands now stock craft supplies from Crafters Companion.

I have been really lazy this week and made my card in Word. It is from 2 downloads from Cuddlybuddly, that I layered on top of a backing paper, also from Cuddly Buddly. I was then able to just cut it out and stick it to my card blank...... It took about 10 minutes, hows that for lazy...

I did get out the 3d clear gloss for the flowers etc.

Dont for get there is 3 free digi stamps available from the Stamping Boutique for this weeks lucky winner, chosen at random.
I have also entered this card into Craft a Scene Spring Flowers.
