A Vintage Aeroplane Card

My Father in Law has just celebrated a milestone birthday and this is the card I made for him, He has always loved aeroplanes and this sort of came about.

I used a vintage aeroplane image from the internet and for some reason the printer printed it out in sepia.
I mounted it on to beige card and inked and distressed around the edges,
Stamps are Viva Decor, and some magnetic stamps I picked up in a bargain bin which I  stamped in brown ink, I used a Tim Holtz ticket die for the sentiment and the ribbon and brad came from stash.

I would like to enter in into the following challenges,

Creative Card Challenges - Vintage/Distressed
Try it on Tuesdays - One for the boys
Cards for Men - Someone Special

Clearly a happy accident (the printer's hissy fit) as the sepia look is perfect for this great card.

Thanks for joining in the fun at Crafty Cardmakers.
