Vintage Car Happy Birthday

I wanted to play in the challenge over at Seize The Birthday!

For my card I inked up the Cars & Trucks background stamp by Basic Grey with Faded Jeans distress ink. I cut an 1/8" slit in it about a fourth of the way down to mimic the slit in the sketch. I cut my car out of blue card stock using a Silhouette Studio cut file. For the sentiment I stamped it on white card stock, cut it to look lie a banner, punched to tiny holes in it and ran a stick pin through it, then attached it to my car so that it would look like an antenna.

Supplies used: card stock - white, recycled white, blue; stamps - Cars & Trucks Silhouette by Basic Grey, WTF by Cas-ual Fridays Stamps; ink - Faded Jeans Distress Ink by Tim Holtz for Ranger and Tuxedo Black by Memento; Silhouette Studio cut file; stick pin - Little Yellow Bicycle; circle punch - EK Success; hole punch - Fiskars; Pop Dots.
