My Uncle Dennis has a birthday next week and so I made this card for him.  I used a new Tim Holtz die that I got of the car.  I stamped the kraft paper with weathered wood ink to give it that old distressed look.  The background paper that looks like newsprint is a stamp that I found in my stash from Glitz Design which I stamped with Memento ink.  I used the new Authenique paper Free Ride which I thought coordinated perfect for this card.

Love the sentiment. I've done several with that particular one and is always enjoyed by the recipient and I know some lucky person will enjoy theirs. Thank you for joining us this week in the Catch the Bug challenge.
