On the Road Happy Birthday -My Craft Spot Project

Hello everyone, I'm sharing a quick and easy card with you, this is being featured over at My Craft Spot today.
I used the Sweet Sentiments #1 Stamp Set and the Tiny Banners and Toppers metal dies, both are available at in the My Craft Spot shop -HERE.
I was not able to be with my husband this year for his birthday so wanted to send him a fun travel type B-day card, and this is what I've come up with...
The birthday sentiment from the Sweet Sentiments #1 stamp set, the road signs are cut using the Tiny Banners and Toppers metal dies, then I used a pen to make stitching marks on each sign, the narrow poles are hand cut using brown cardstock.
 This car shape is so fun! I cut it using my Sillhouette Cameo, the image is from Paper Piecing by Nikki, the image can be found -HERE. Window was cut using vellum cardstock, I sponged a light blue ink around the edges.
The pattern paper I used is from Farm House Paper Company "Fair Skies" 6x6 pad.
For the road I used a strip of burlap.
 Side view of my card, I added foam tape to pop my car up from the card.
 This is the inside of my card, I had cut the banner, and again the sentiment is from the Sweet Sentiment #1 stamp set.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, have a wonderfully creative day!
