Jalopy Card

It's a quicky, post and card.  I was asked to make a retirement card.  The card is for a truck driver hence the Jalopy!  The card is a 5x5 to accommodate the Jalopy and my need to layer.  I left the windows in for the Jalopy as it looks more like a delivery truck.
  Love the mini clip and token!  I tore the end of the tag off and layered it behind the main tag.  A great and quick way to layer.
 
I used kraft Glassine for the jalopy and stamped "General Agents for all Periodicals".  He delivers magazines.  I used these gears for tires.  Perfect for a guy card.
I cut a mini tag and stamped a ledger in frayed burlap...like an invoice. Then I stamped "enjoy the journey". I thought it was fitting for the next stage of his life.
Once everyone has signed it I hear there's a great weekend trip to a favourite spa of mine being tucked in here!  Lucky!
