VW Beetle Christmas Mini Card #3

Maybe I ought to come up with some other name for these cards than 'mini' cards, because really they aren't all that mini. My square cards normally measure 15cm or 13cm, so these at 10cm are smaller, but they're not tiny either. This card uses up another of the outlet find card base/envelope packs used with (kinda) Mini #1 and Mini #2

The VW focal point image is from Prettygrafik's Vintage Christmas Cars digi set.  I see the set on their site, but the art is wrong; I've alerted them to the problem, but I won't link to the set unless I know you'll get the right image. The paper is Carta Bella's Christmas Delivery paper pack #1 and #2 in digital form from Snap Click Supply Company. This paper pad in it's physical form is one of the few I own I've used almost completely up (search the blog by 'Christmas Delivery' to see other cards made with it). It's retired now, so imagine how thrilled I was to find it again digitally! 

I dressed up the car with a no-brand bow and greenery dies, a button, and some matt enamel dots.
