Hurry home card

 Hello folks!  Now for a long thin card.  For this one I folded an A4 sheet of card in half lengthways.  I created the background by inking over, direct to paper, with my chocolate brilliance ink pad.  I then embossed the card with a polka dots embossing folder. Then I had great fun spritzing with cosmic shimmer mists. I did my usual 'inking around the edges', added the ribbon and huge bow, then layered it onto some black card before adhering to the card front.
 The cute image is from one of the Gruffies stamp sets (part of the House Mouse range) that Joanna Sheen stocks: Bearytastic Day.  I coloured it with alcohol markers and added glossy accents to the car and the windows... I left the front window 'un-glossed' as the flapping scarf shows it's open.
I used my Cricut to cut the letters, DCWV patterned papers, and shadows from black card.  The letters are from the Mickey Mouse cartridge.  I glued everything down with dimensional glue gel.
I hope you are having a good day.
Ciao for now!
