Embossing and sanding gives this background texture and highlights the car!

I used a card kit from my May class to create this card.  The focal image is an old car digital image (Arthur"s Clipart) which I laser printed, die cut (Nestibilities)  and watercoloured to coordinate with my background.  I added clear glitter ink to all of the chromed areas - bumper, wheel spokes, lights, etc.  I layered this focal image to a blue layer, added some coordinating green ribbon which was folded, trimmed and glued to the back.  The background was created using coloured cardstock which was colour printed, stenciled, stamped and then embossed with a scroll frame embossing folder.  The embossing was slowly sanding to reveal the original green cardstock.   The sanding adds some soft texture to this background.  The background was layered onto a navy card front and the focal image was added using 3D foam tape.  A fun card appropriate for Father's Day or a guy birthday!!
