A Father's Day Card for a CCChallenge #16

Hi Everyone in blog land, I hope all the Mothers out there had a wonderful Mother's Day! Now on to Father's Day cards that need to be made for the fathers in your life. This week is Father's Day Cards at Creative Cutting Challenge and if you need an idea go check them out and then add you own card to the challenge. My card:
I created a card with a classic car from the Car Set collection
Car Set - Click Image to Close 
This set has 5 cool cars in it, that are great for anything masculine.
 This was a really fun card to make. The car was cut from black cardstock and vellum in my stash. This was the first time I used vellum with the cricut and it cut the design out perfect at the same setting as the black cardstock. The card base is from the seaside pack I purchase from Joanns, the background layer is from the Colorbok Textures pack, the paper gave a nice background for the car and the sentiment. I found some twill ribbon in my stash for the border (note: need to get some masculine ribbon). I made to blocks from the blue piece I used and the light tan from my stash that the edges were ink with distressed ink Walnut Stain. The sentiment was cut from one of the fonts from SCAL and was cut from a blue in a Metals pack of cardstock from recollections. Added 2 green buttons from my stash to balance out the green from the ribbon. 
Now to decide who is going to get this cool card....

Thanks for stopping by today and seeing the view from my little corner of the world....
