Chasing Cars

An intriguing challenge at Daring Cardmakers: interpret "Chasing Cars" by Snow Patrol. I'm sure the meaning of a song is different to everyone but to me the line "forget the world" reminds me of carefree summer holidays, where you literally do forget the world for a fortnight.

My card is multi-layered. The first layer has acrylic and textured paint; the second alcohol inks, with stamping of seashells from the Cavallini set.
