Limited Edition

My neighbour came over tonight for our weekly card making evening.
It was my turn to design the card and have 2 card kits ready for us to make up. I chose a classic car stamp that I inked up for the first time a while back and luckily I stamped several images that day. I coloured them all up on another one of our craft evenings and so I now had the makings of a focal point!

I added a couple of Spellbinders sprocket looking dies and an old button from my stash.  I was going to computer generate "You're a classic" but chose to go with the slightly more generic "Limited Edition" sentiment. I have left the inside blank for now...I think would suit a Birthday card or even Fathers Day.

I think it is a worlds first for me that I actually remembered the blue card stock was the self adhesive variety. I proudly peeled the backing paper off and stuck it down! Sadly, it didn't seem to stick with a vengeance...It just sort of sticks like repositionable tape.  I threw some additional adhesive on the back and finally got a good contact!
Not sure if this will go in my finished cards basket or in with the cards I make for my daughter...

Recipe:
Card base and envelope - from my stash (Michael's)
Design paper - Creative Imaginations Art Warehouse danelle johnston Neutral;
                        Momenta Story of Us (snippet from wedding pages)
Cardstock - from my stash (snippets of self adhesive card stock)
Dies - Spellbinders Sprightly sprockets; Spellbinders round petites; Spellbinders Nested Pennants
Stamp - wooden stamp with no name written on the side!
Sentiment - computer  generated
Button - from my stash

I am submitting this card for the following challenges:
1. Pixies Crafty Workshop - must use snippets
2. Sister Act - Anything goes
3. The House That Stamps Built - Masculine card
4. Clear it out - Use Stash and 2 or more patterned papers ( I used 3)
5. Crafty Sentiments - use a sentiment
6. Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - use black accents
