Vintage Greetings(Birthday)

Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday to all!
Today's card was created for Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge & I Brake For Stamps using the Manly Large Vintage Auto Stamp. LOVE this stamp as its not only vintage, but its also manly, and works perfect for Birthdays/Fathers Day/or just to say hello!
It's funny, when I was all done with my card, I was taking the photo's and thinking something is missing...hmmmmm I thought maybe it was a BIG BOW!!!!LOL NO..... I thought maybe some brads or something, as I am used to lots of layers and embellishing. Anyways I am pleased with how this one turned out, as it is for a man, and im sure the last thing they want to see is a big bow....hahahahaha
Card Base is 12 x 6 and scored in the center at 6".
Layers-then cut my brown card stock at 5 3/4" x 5 3/4", the Polka dot(crate paper bundled up Noel) design paper is cut at 5 1/2" x 5 1/2",I did add 2 strips of another design paper down the left side, it is bazzill (Dino Mite sharp tooth) and then sewn together. Next the brown card stock panel is cut at 5 x 2 3/4"  and then the design paper (calico state fair)at 4 3/4" x 2 1/2", and sewn together.
Vintage Auto image was stamped in Memento black ink, and stamped on white card stock, then colored with copics E57, T0 , and C5, and then cut down to 4 x 2 1/2" and then I distressed the edges with antique Linen. Its layered on brown card stock, and that is cut at 4 1/4" x 2 3/4". No sewing to that layer
HAPPY- is done with Thickers
Polka Dot Ribbon- Cut to look like a banner tag.

Wow! I really like this card! And I especially like how you used the designer paper in the background. So creative and very nicely done!
