Vintge birthday card for my dad!

My dad turns 87 years old tomorrow!  I designed this birthday card for him using the following Tim Holtz products:  rubber stamps, acrylic stamps, tape, and border die cut.  I added the "4 You" from Stampin' Up!'s stamp set and tag punch.  I was able to use the keyhole eyelet that I bought about three years ago!  Think it looks great in the corner with the tag hanging from it.  I used espresso metallic paint instead of ink for this card, distressing the edges of the paper and the tape as well.  I added just a bit of black/tan striped ribbon to the top edge of the car, using foam dots to give the car a lift off the paper.  I am really happy with the way it turned out!  Happy birthday, dad, and many more!!!
