You're a Classic

Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the challenge at Cupcake Inspirations and the CupCake Inspirations this week
of Sept. 29, 2012 is:
My inspiration from the photo: I saw a lot of orange and the decorations on the top to the icing reminded me of autumn and  falling leaves.

 I used a Doodle Pantry  digital stamp set  called 'Hotrod Pickup'. I think  is  the neatest little pickup truck and it was  great fun to colour. I did add  'crystal effects' to the windows and the headlights (thanks Laurie for the inspiration- see here for Laurie's card) but did not manage to capture it in my photo. I also used crystal effects on my leaves.The leaf images were stamped onto the designer paper and after cutting them out  they felt quite flimsy, hence the crystal effect to try and give them some body and strength. - we will see if works or not. This set contains an outline image and sentiments. I coloured the image with Prismacolor Markers and the sentiment is from the same stamp set. I  distressed the  card stock  the truck image was printed on and the layer behind the grey  embossed square.
