Consider Yourself Vintage - 50th Birthday Card

Good morning! Catching up another card from last year - this is one I made for a magazine submission call that was never picked up:

Also, considering I was making it as a masculine birthday card, I am also linking up with the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - It's a Guy Thing:

I used a Paper Smooches stamp set for the large numbers, and the rest of the sentiment is from an older Unity Kit of the Month. The front panel was cut with an Avery Elle die, and pattern paper is by Crate Paper. A little misting with some Tim Holtz distress markers and the misting tool, a bit of washi tape, and one of the cars from the background paper fussy cut and adhered finished this one off!

Thanks for dropping by! Have a wonderful day!!!
