The Distressed Card

I have recently purchased some Tim Holtz stamps, They are ideal for men's cards and I just love the old styling of them, This is the first card I have made with them,

I have used kraft card and a mixture of different Tim Holtz stamps to make the background ,
I stamped the car on a different bit of card and stuck it on foam squares to give it a bit of definition,
then just added  some Tim Holtz tickets a button and a sentiment to finish it off.

I would like to enter it into the following challenges,
