Papertrey Ink Stamp a Faire challenge

This is for the Papertrey Ink Stamp a Faire challenge number nine, to look at a stamp or use it in a new way. I am not sure this qualifies, but the first thing that came to mind is that when you drive around in the summer, you see all sorts of creative holders for flowers and yes, I've seen people use cars as planters.

So instead of the car you drive, this is my car as planter, complete with the rust you'd accumulate if it sat a while in the yard in the elements. Thanks for looking, happy stamping!

Stamps: Papertrey Ink Enjoy the Ride, Garden Variety
Ink: black, kiwi kiss, new leaf, hibiscus burst, pure poppy and tumbled glass
Paper: Spring moss, soft stone, white, patterned paper scraps
Other: ribbon, glitter, button, nestability, rock candy crackle, copics

I am just getting around to commenting on some of the SAF cards and this one is so original! I love all of the ideas that you used to create this card. How unique and beautiful.
