My husband recently bought himself a 2005 papaya orange Audi TT coupe quatro. He’d been longing for a sports car for a while and after struggling for some time with his practical self, gave in to the pleasure of owning a second car built for speed and performance, instead of child car seat capacity and luggage space. Although he did ask my opinion, I have never been interested in cars, nor do I know a thing about them, but I knew it meant a lot to him, so I left it to him to decide what to do. He originally wanted it in yellow, but found this great papaya orange instead! At first I really didn’t like the idea of the yellow or any other bright color, but now I have to admit that I think the orange is a really cool look for this car!
This week’s Crafty Creations Challenge was set by Claire (hopejacare) to the theme of TRANSPORTATION. So, I thought I’d make a card to congratulate Des on the purchase of his rather awesome car!
His favourite color is yellow and the car is as I’ve said papaya orange, so that set the colors for my card.
