Vintage Greens.

I cannot believe that last week I didn't make a Christmas card!
My DT card for Christmas Cards Challenge was ready and I spent the whole week making cards for various occasions, mainly using images I've recently bought or that I've wanted to use for a long while!

It's the case of the card I want to share today.
It has actually been made following a challenge theme and I must admit that I colored two images, the one I finally put in the card and... a Christmas one!

Let's start from the beginning.
I treated myself with some Mo Manning's digi stamps during the sale in her shop. I often buy images I like during sales but I tend to forget them if I don't use them immediately. The other day I had a look at Mo's Digital Challenge to be inspired to make a card.
The theme is "Lots of Layers" so I started coloring two images and I finally opted for this:

I fell in love with this digi the first time I saw it. It is Jack Driving and I'm still deciding if my favourite is Jack, happy driving his car, or his mother (maybe his granny?), a bit scared...
We have all taken driving lessons or been next to someone learning so we all know what it means...

The green scheme arrived by chance, I didn't want to color the card red so I went for some vintage greens, maybe it's the old lady's car...
Papers are from a Forever Friends paper pad called The Good Life.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
