Inspired by...Sharon *Day 4*

Happy Friday!  Before we begin today, I want to send a HUGE thanks to Sharon for allowing me to share her incredible and oh-so-inspiring cards this week.  Her work always leaves me itching to play with my stamps.  Here's our last inspiration card by Sharon:
The distressing on this card by Sharon just glows!  I love her overall design - the main focal image bordered by the light and kraft strips on each side.  It's just so balanced and pleasing to the eye.  Finally, her color scheme is so rich and beautiful, too!
Here is my take.  I was especially inspired by her overall design (I used it horizontally) and her yummy inking!

The background was stamped and distressed using the following Distress Inks: Old Paper, Walnut Stain, and Brushed Corduroy.  The car image was colored using Copic Markers. All stamps Penny Black.

Thanks so much for visiting!  Remember, you can still enter my giveaway HERE.
