Masculine Card With Stripes

The girls at Cuttlebug Mania want us to make a masculine card with stripes this week. For my card I've used this layout from Tuesday Morning Sketches

I must admit that this is my second go as the first one I tried with a square card and when it was all put together it just didn't work and ended up in the bin! I've used a Marianne car die as the main image. I do have some proper crafting metal but it is not cheap so I came up with these which at 99p, I thought were great value

And they cut the die beautifully in my Cuttlebug. You'd get 4 of the cars from the centre flat piece and I'm sure I'll find a use for the outside pieces. The stripy backing paper is from a DCWV pad called Cafe Mediterranean. The letters are  Tattered Lace dies again cut from the plate. A few Papermania Mosaic gems to finish
