VW Bug - Bad Day Card

I was playing around on Splitcoast (and not doing was I was supposed to be working on) and found THIS CARD! It seemed like too much fun to not make a template for this card. This is totally my kind of humor. Since it amused me so much, I made the template FREE!

The main card base is Baja Breeze, and then I cut a top layer out of Real Red card stock for the front with the windshield cut out, and a second layer for the front hood. I sponged it with Cherry Cobbler ink.
The lights are a 3/4" Circles punched out of Silver and a 1/2" Circle out of So Saffron. I used the Under the Stars stamp set for the mosquito that hit the front windshield, and I used the Perfect Words Hostess stamp set for the license plate. The mirrors are using the Word Window Punch.
This is what the inside says:

Here is the car just plain, you can make it into any type of card!

THANK YOU for this! I've driven my baby blue 1967 Beetle since I was 16, many years ago. After all that time, they become your child! I'm so thrilled to finally have a big card. I've had the same mechanic for 12 years...I think he will get this one for Christmas. Thank you!
