Burning tyres birthday card

Good evening crafty mates: Hopy you've all enjoyed the beautiful sunny spring day, doesn't it make you feel good to see the yellow glow in the sky.
Tonight the card I'm posting is one I made for my nephew (who is also my godson). He likes cars as well as cycling, and I thought it was a change to the usual cycle cards I make for him.
I've used: Tyres embossing folder coloured with distress ink for the background
Kanban car topper
Lilac cardstock
Bakers twine
Tim holtz gear
Round sentiment
Brads from stash.

Hope you like it. Hugs Dee x
