Birthday Card for Gary WT282 CPS178

This is a birthday card for my brother, Gary in California. He LOVES old cars...moreso classics from 50s/60s, but I think he'll like this too. I used a panel from my Graphics45 dp as my main image and a key sticker. The card base is actually a card that my husband received (love to recycle). Loved the flap with the brads. Used that and covered rest in various cardstocks, including the core'dinations cuttlebugged and sanded panel. The piercing is for today's Splitcoaststampers Ways to Use It Challenge - WT282 (stick it - use pins and needles or sticks, either as elements on your card, or to pierce), found here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/ways-use-f46/wt282-stick-8-5-2010-a-t501372.html. The layout is a sketch challenge - CPS178 - from Card Positioning Systems, found here: http://cardpositioningsystems.blogspot.com/2010/08/cps-178-part-1.html.
