Daddy....You're VINTAGE!!

Today I have followed the sketch and Vintage theme for the current Pollycraft challenge to make my hubby's birthday card from our littlies.

(Pollycraft Sketch)

 I chose the oh-so-cute Cuthbert Car image from Pollycraft as he has a convertible, and coloured it up to match his, in silver! I added the 'personalised number plate' too!  I coloured the image with Promarkers and cut it out with a nestie.

 My papers are Papermania Colossal Paper Pack 'For Him' (which I have had for EVER!) I did some tearing and used  lots of ink to distress with, and some garden twine and vintage buttons (I became a little addicted to buying vintage buttons from Ebay a while back and have quite a healthy stash of them!!) The sentiment was created on the computer.

I almost forgot to add a picture of the inside, which I also decorated to match.

As well as the Pollycraft Challenge, I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Thanks for popping by!
