Vintage Transport

This is the birthday card I have made for my niece's husband, I don't quite know what relation that makes him?

I don't really know him that well and I'm not sure what his hobbies or interests are so I have opted for a traditional male card:

The decoupage image is from a Hunkydory kit that I have had for ages - I have cut it out with one of my Spellbinders dies and cut a slightly larger dark brown mat to layer it onto.  The text backing paper is also from the kit and I have layered it onto some more of the dark brown card stock.  I used my favourite Fiskars edge punch for the border and my X-cut die to cut the small star.  The sentiment is recycled from an old birthday card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Aud Sentiments Challenge 78 - For a guy!
