Grunge Thank you card

card, chalkboard, destinations, grunge, instant card, me & my big ideas, thank you, Tim Holtz,
Finally...the weekend!  

You know what I like about weekends in the winter?  Crafting.  :)

Just a quick post sharing a manly thank you card.  I decided to go grunge and use some paper a good friend of mine so kindly gave me: Tim Holtz' Destinations.  The card uses one of the pages as the card base, two more patterned sheets were distressed and adhered as shown.  
I fussy cut a car from one of the other sheets in the same paper pad.  I applied Ranger's Glossy Accents to the car to add depth and make it look like an actual toy card.  The bling was purchased at Michaels (do not recall the brand).
The chalkboard sentiment "Thank you so much" is from Me & My Big Ideas, Cards in an Instant package.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a good weekend!
