vroom vroom lol

Hehehe I had fun making this card!!! My friend's little boy will be three later this month and he is a bit mad on Lightening McQueen, so I wanted to make him a card with that in mind but without going down the whole printing an image of it road. The paper and car template are from the Happy Happy Birthday cd by Funky Hand. The black square of card is embossed with an industrial looking folder, like the tread on metal stairs, the car buttons were bought yonks ago when I was knitting for Alfie and I couldn't resist them lolI used some acetate for the windscreen, some more buttons for headlights and some card candy too. The card goes round to the back of the card too, with rear lights, will take a pic later if I remember (wouldn't hold your breath tho lol) I hope he likes it :o)
