Snoopy Bus Driver Card

Created this Snoopy Bus Driver Card using:
1.  5 1/2" x 4 1/4" Base Kraft cardstock
2. Stampabilities Snoopy Bus Driver rubber stamp - bought at a yard sale along with some other Snoopy stamps
3. Memento Tuxedo Black to stamp the Snoopy Bus Driver onto white cardstock & Base Kraft cardstock
4. Color the Snoopy Bus Driver image on white carstock with Crayol pencil colors & Venus Col-erase pencils
5. Cut out the Snoopy Bus Driver image from white cardstock minus the ground line
6. Recycle some clear plastic by cutting it & placing over the Snoopy Bus window area 
7. Add brads (darkest I had was purple) to the Snoopy Bus Driver wheels cut out white cardstock image
8. Add black enamel accents to the Snoopy Bus Driver wheels brads to make them black
9. Pop the Snoopy Bus Driver colored image over the Kraft cardstock Base stamped image using the ground lines to align it up
10. Punch a circle with a Fiskars 1 1/2" circle punch for sentiment tag
11. Stamp the BasicGrey sentiment with Apple "Give Thanks Be Grateful" on red circle and place on Base in upper left corner
12. Add the bus strip from the Paper Studio School Busses scrapbook paper to bottom of Base
13. Cover the sentiment tag, Bus & bus strip and spray Kraft cardstock Base with Perfect Pearls Mists Heirloom Gold - next time I make this I'll spray the Kraft cardstock after stamping the Bus image on Kraft cardstock Base and before placing anything on the Kraft cardstock Base so no pieces do not need to be covered

brads: 2 purple - painted black with black enamel accents
enamel accents: black - used to paint the purple brads on Bus Wheels
5 1/2" x 4 1/4" Base Kraft cardstock
the Paper Studio School Busses scrapbook paper
