It's a Man's World.

Thankyou to everyone who left kind  messages on my post below.  They were all very  much appreciated.
I made a card for The Doc's Birthday. Not this one but very similar . I enjoyed making it so much that I made two and this  is the second one. I found a fantastic freebie site for images and downloaded the car pictures from here.
I wanted to make a card with a vintage car theme and this was just what I wanted. I used my XCut Nesting die "Square Parenthesis" to cut a window to look like a picture frame and  rubbed Inka Gold onto it  to  resemble an old gilt frame.

 The sentiment was from my "Say it with Flowers" CD by SharonDuncan / Joanna Sheen. Papers , card, ribbon and buttons were all from my  stash.

Thanks for popping over and leaving a lovely comment, it's nice to know that the cushion was a success. Ooops for the dropped rings, at least they didn't fall down the grating!!
It's funny you mentioned Sunbonnet Sue, I seen a cushion at the fete with a S.Sue design that reminded me of a sketch I done years ago with a 'grown up' Sue with a parasol and a bustle. S.Sue is such a cute design, be sure to show and tell when it's done.
