Script, books, pages and print on the catwalk at FSC

Hello folks, we've got a new challenge starting at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and this time our theme is 'Script.books, pages, print' and usually this would be right up my street but for some reason I really struggled for ideas. Maybe all this hot weather has addled my brain lol.

The background was made with distress paints, layered up with some bits of old book pages and some text stamping. I added a bit of an old map and next a doiley. The lady and the car are both stamps from Flonzcraft, coloured with Graph'It markers, I love these stamps together :-). The sentiment is a Chocolate Baroque stamp. To finish off I've added some red gems,red seam binding and a little red button.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
ART card challenge: anything goes
City Crafter: on the road
Crafts too: favourite era (50s for me, although I wasn't born then lol)
Crafty Ribbons: anything goes with ribbon
QKR Stampede: Cars, trains and planes

Thanks for visiting today
