Masculine Wedding Card?

Good evening folks.
The weather has not been as bad as the weathermen would have had us believe yesterday, in fact it was positively balmy this morning. Still there is a little drizzle in the air now but definitely not the thunderstorms that were predicted!
My son is off to a wedding of one of his Leeds Uni friends next weekend, so I've made him a card as requested. I was struggling to find a male friendly card but also keep it suitable of the happy couple.
Then I remembered a new die I got the other week in anticipation of 30th birthday cards and it has a suitable greeting. So here it is.


Apologies for the reflection on the embossed frame, the sun wasn't even out!
The die is from MFT - Road Trip and I cut it out in a glossy white card stock, assembled the parts, adding the greeting to match UK registration plates and added some tin cans to the bumper. They are actually the wing mirrors attached with linen thread! I made the window panel into a shaker card to give it a fun twist, adding die cut hearts and a few sequins and beads.
I've left it at that as it is a card from a guy to the happy couple, so no frilly touches.

I'm joining in the fun at -

Time Out Challenges - Happy is the bride the sun shines on.
Well I hope the sun does shine on the Peak District next Saturday for the wedding!

Moving along with the Times - To the Happy Couple

Thanks for calling around, see you back soon. :)
