Pile it on #15 - Color Pop! + Card Patterns + Ways To Use It

Happy Monday Everyone! Supposed to be that Mondays are intended as a chore catch up day, but today, the laundry & the dishes still need to be put away, the vacuum remains in the closet and the kitchen remains unmopped. I just wanted to play along with a couple challenges this morning. One if the "good" things about my dh being a ddh, (dear deployed husband) is that he wont notice if I skip a day of chores..and I get to watch HGTV anytime I want. LOL.
Anyway, I made this card with inspiration from three challenges. 1) Pile it on where the challenge is "Color Pop", use black & white & one more color. 2) The ways to use it challenge at splitcoast where the challenge is to use RED and 3) Card Patterns for the sketch.
As a sidenote, yes, you do see some yellow but that is just to highlight the windows/lights so I dont really consider it a "color" in my card.
I chose this super cool 1969 Camaro designed by Laurie Wilson at Clear Dollar Stamps, as my focal point, highlighted by dahlia nesties and night and day (su) dsp. Although this is not officially one of my Guest Designer stamp sets from Clear Dollar, I, along with Lori G, am a guest designer for the month of September!
