Happy Birthday to a real classic!

Mom invited my husband and I over to celebrate my dad's birthday tomorrow, so I couldn't put off making his card any longer!

The car and circles came from Holiday Cakes, a cartridge I'd picked up a while ago because it was a good price and I figured a variety of holiday images can always come in handy.  I hadn't used it until today though.  The black circle was run through the Diamonds in the Rough Cuttlebug folder and the green strip was run through the Spots and Dots folder.  With the patterned paper, I figured I'd better put the sentiment on one of the red circles, but I didn't have a stamp that small and didn't want to mess around with my computer printer, so I went with handwritten sentiments this time.

This card will be entered in the following challenges:
Skipping Stones Design #113--sketch challenge
Whimsical Designs--Bringing out the old (Holiday Cakes cartridge)
Die Cuttin Divas #50--Anything goes
Craft Spot by Kimberly--Anything goes
Birthday Sundaes--Challenge #41, Easel card
