Vintage car



Today's card was a mega fast one for me - I'm not normally a quick crafter but this one came together really quickly. The vintage car is from a sheet of 12" x 12" scrapbook paper by Graphic 45 which I bought at the beginning of the summer and have been admiring ever since!! Today I finally plucked up the courage to cut into it!!
The other papers were scraps from my box, Basic Grey and MME (I think) along with a recycled envelope for the kraft paper background! The greeting is computer generated and cut with a nestie and attatched with a brad. All the edges have been inked with chestnut chalk. I'm really chuffed with the way this came out and I still have lots of cars left to play with so I think there might be some more vintage classics coming along soon!
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Rosie D's: One for the boys
Polka Doodles: Vintage Style
& Truly Scrumptious: Great Sketch!
Thanks for looking!!
