Vintage Car Trio

Hello lovely peeps

Oops, I got my days mixed up - my Guest DT spot isn't until tomorrow. 

In the mean time, I've made a card with one of the fabulous new trio stamps from Lili of the Valley that are being launched at the end of the month.

This one is called 'Vintage Car'.

I've coloured the images with my Graph'It markers:-
Paintwork: 8210, 8220, 8245, 8280
Tyres: 9404, 9405, 9406, 9407
Dashboard: 3110, 2130 
Instruments: 4114, 41505, 4180
Steering Wheel: 9500, 9501, 9502, 9503
Sky: 7105
Outline: 9401

This set comes with three fab sentiments - the other two are 'Perfectly Vintage' and 'Classic Guy'. 
I drew a box around the 'On Your Birthday' sentiment with a .01 Fineliner pen, then cut it out.  I've mounted the sentiment and the images on foam pads for a bit of dimension.

The background is cut from an old Ordinance Survey map. There was a crease in the paper where the map had been folded, but I don't 'do' ironing so I covered up the crease instead. I die-cut some wood effect paper with a Sizzix/Tim Holtz strip die called 'Washerboard'
