Vintage car

A birthday card for an older gent… the kind who don’t really appreciate clean and simple and think the more you put on it the more you love them! (Bless!)

The car is cut from a printed sheet and the ribbon came from a Christmas cracker 🙂 I printed out the sentiment.

This one is entered in:

The Male Room challenge #77 Vintage

and

Watercooler Wednesday’s Masculine Challenge 153 from Gail

I’ve watched Design Team calls go by for these two of my favourite challenges. I wish I had the time to apply, let alone create the cards 🙁  Perhaps some day – when I retire maybe!  Meanwhile, the artists who have been appointed are truly inspirational for which I’m always grateful.

Here is the haiku for this one:

As you get older
your worth grows faster than the
cherry we planted

    Wow Helen, what a lovely thing to say. We love it when you have time to enter our challenge as well. What a great card you’ve created for the older gent. I love the way you use found materials such as the ribbon from the Christmas cracker. The vintage car is gorgeous and matches that ribbon beautifully. And the sentiment you’ve printed out, perfect. Let’s hope we all remember that. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

    Older gents are quite fussy aren’t they. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Masculine Challenge this week and for your wonderful comments and always inspiring cards. I love this one. It really is CAS even if he won’t think so. Love it!

    I really like this vintage car – it’s a super image and the recycled ribbon works perfectly. I do like this take on the theme. And it’s always a pleasure to read your haiku too! Thanks so much for playing along with the vintage theme at The Male Room. Deborah. DT
