A vintage blue Nancy Drew roadster!

The Midweek Throwdown Challengea at Operation Write Home is "transportation". I found this 1929 image at Digital Two for Tuesday . I absolutely loved reading Nancy Drew mysteries when I was a girl and this digi reminded me of reading about Nancy in her shiny blue roadster! The car is a combination of paper pieced and colored with Copics and silver gel pen:

Hi, Sherry! I saw your card on Cora's blog and just had to come tell you how good it is to see some of the images from Digital Two for Tuesday in use. You've combined everything so perfectly for this card, from your choice of papers to the ribbon. Really love the ribbon with this! I, too, was a Nancy Drew fan when I was a kid.

I love how you coordinated the image and the papers. The mix of coloring and piecing made the card extra special. Great job!!
