Clive is 50

Good morning all.
Today sees the start of an other new challenge over at Cards4Guyz.
This week our theme is -


So, I had quite a few ideas about this topic but in the end decided to share a card that I made for a friend of my daughter's, whose husband Clive, was going to be 50.

She wanted a card that showed a green mini with a monochrome union flag on the roof. Just like his real car! I immediately knew that the MFT car die would be just the thing, so using some glossy green cardstock and some other scraps, I got a' die cutting! 
Making the car was the easy part but how to make an interesting card? In the end I used a street sign theme, making a 50mph sign and directional name ( there is a place Clive not far from us) die cut with more MFT dies. The road was cut from charcoal grey card and I added some free cut white lines. Some NitWits papers complete the scene.

OK, that's about it from me. Please check out the rest of the team for more great inspiration and then why not join in this week?
