Proud to be British

Good morning. Bought a magazine yesterday - Papercraft Inspiration and they had some 2 pages of free papers in - cool Britania. Well its my friends birthday on Tuesday and shes just bought a mini and as shes a girly girl thought i'd have a go using them.
The image is a poplar one at the minute by Penny Black. I coloured it using my copics and added glossy accents to the headlights and wheelhubs. I chose shades of pink and green to match the pastel papers from the magazine.
I framed the image using a die and inked the edges pale pink. All the backing papers are from the magazine and look great with the mini. I also cut the union jack heart from the papers and mounted it in the flower center. The bunting is a stamp - Celebrations Pennants by Whimsy Stamps which I attached with some green twine. To finish it off I added some pink card candi.

I even had eough paper left to decorate the inside of the card, finished off with another heart.
I am entering this card in the following challenges -
