Your Best Miles are Still Ahead

Welcome Everyone;

Now that things are beginning to look up, we can look forward to some leisurely peaceful summer drives in the country and to the beach.   I remember the Beetle from growing up.  These cars may be small, but they certainly got you places.

For today's card, I have used Beetle Bug 1 from the Mix It Up release and paired it up with Best Miles;  which both have been sprung from the High Hopes Stamps Vault.  After colouring the samped image with Copic Markers, I used a Double Stitched Rectangle Die to cut it out and mounted it on some Foil from Kaisercraft.  To add the Silver glitter, I used a Nuvo Silver Glitter Marker to colour the area first, then added some Nuvo Silver Sparkle Dust.  I didn't think it was going to stick, but it did.  How long it will last is another story, and time will tell.  I haven't added Sparkle Dust to a card, this way before.  The creative experiment of the day.   Some enamel dots finished off this very CAS card.
