Happy Birthday to a Special Father - Card No 2

Here is the second birthday card for one of the boys to give their dad.  I'll leave them to decide who has which - well normally the youngest will pick his first and the eldest will get the one leftover!!!

We have had two cards for Father's Day, three cards for my husband's birthday (two for the boys and my one (which can be found here)) and then one from me for the following week as it will be our 23rd wedding anniversary so in six weeks my husband will get six handmade cards so I do get to the stage of struggling what to do as we've done flowers/garden, buses (as he's a bus driver), so this time I went for a vintage car.

For this card I have used another Debbi Moore CD which is "Cards for Men".  I've got the Vintage Transport one on my wish list and I think I'll have to have that ready for more cards for him.

I have used a decoupage sheet, design sheet and topper sheet so that I could decorate the card inside/outside/on the back.  I have used foam pads to raise the decoupage well as my son doesn't have to worry about posting the card to his dad.

I have finished the card off with some ribbon (which was white/black and I coloured with a brown Graph'it pen and made it brown/black as that was more in keeping with the card), X-cut die-cut cogs inked with a brown chalk ink pad, sentiment off the computer, ribbon bow and some card candi.
