Challenge Pile Up

Hello.  Welcome.  So, you know how it is.  You see a great sketch, and someone wants purple, and monochrome, and CAS, and one for the men, and that was a cool card by Deepti with the boat in the frame.   I missed the monochrome (again!!), and the boat became a car, and the purple became unimportant, but other than that..........

I wanted my car to be purple and shiny so I stamped, embossed and fussy cut Stamplorations Enjoy The Ride on a purple metal sheet.  Gold and silver pilot markers for highlights.  I cut a postage stamp frame from purple papers using a Sizzix die.  I used rainbow corrugated card as my card base and used a black stick on line and gratulerer (congratulations in Norwegian).  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
