Happy Birthday, Tim Holtz

Linda's Grungy Monday is celebrating the products of Tim Holtz for his birthday.   I covered cardstock with "Journeyman" tissue tape (both rolls), and die cut the "Old Jalopy."  "A Splendid Adventure" is a sentiment from Stampers Anonymous.  The background layer is from Tim's kraft Paper Stash.  (The tape has a greenish tint because I applied some Pine Needles distress ink to the edges of the car.)

Fantastic card, Evelyn! I can't believe I still don't have that die. I love what you've done with it here. Guess I need to put it back on my list!

Hello Evelyn
Still a little hectic here, I missed your previous post with the Trio of Pink/Black cards; apologies.
They are all gorgeous and you have been really productive unlike myself.
This card is so very Masculine, a real beauty I don't do Man cards, as I find them so uninspiring to make, but that is just me.
Smiles:)
