Vintage Car Birthday

This is for my hubby's birthday.  He has a 1937 Ford Cabriolet -- which is his hobby. 
I got this stamp from a vendor at a car show.  It is his car!   He loves it, when I use his car on his cards. I stamped the car on clear plastic, then on blue glitter paper from DCWV.  And then cut that out, and pieced it on top of the plastic.  His car is this great dark blue color.
The balloon is a die from Penny Black.

I used the sketch from  CAS(E) This Sketch and the colors from   Colour Q .  The papers are from a mix of companies - the colors are from My Mind's Eye, and the "road-like" blue may be from DCWV, with some more stamping on top, and Goosebumps texture spray.

Over at Seize the Birthday - add texture.  I used "Goosebumps" spray, for the first time.  And it won't be the last!  Like its name implies, it leaves raised bumps, with a hint of sparkle.  The paper almost feels like leather after it dries.  Really cool -- I will definitely be using this again. 
Thanks for looking.
