A Cute Birthday Card - All From My Favorite Things Products

Just a little reminder to join Die Cut Divas for their Birthday Challenge. 

A cute Birthday Card for you with the following parameters set by Craft Roulette's Turn of the Wheel on Friday.

# 174 - Project: Circle - wheel & headlights on car
Colors: Wizard of Oz - Ruby red, Yellow brick road, green fields
Elements: On the Road - black road with white stripe on left side
Random: Add Wings - bees with wings

Here is my take on the above categories.  I started with the scene from an old calendar (the mountains are covered by the "black road" piece on the left side) and added a bright red car.  I now wish I had made gold side mirrors instead of black because the left mirror blends in with the black road.  I added green grass, flowers and bees. (The flowers are in pots, but I hid the pots behind the grass).  I colored the front and side panels with a Y08 Copic marker.  I do love the color.  I quite like the result and didn't realize that I chose these wonderful My Favorite Things products.  I mean the bee driving this car is outrageous fun!  It is so cute in real life.

You can see part of the road on the left side, back panel
