Transport theme challenge

Gill's challenge this week is to create a card, SB layout or project using a transport theme. 
My youngest son, Keir, had a birthday in August and I wanted to make a card for him that re-lived his car experience earlier this year. He got to drive an Audi 8 several times around a test track in Surrey and had a ball! Photos were taken by me and the official camera and I have used these to make the card.

I made the BP on Craft Artist with a photo I took as Keir drove back in, faded it out and mounted it onto card. I cut a channel out at the bottom as you would for a slider card. The car is one of the official photos and Keir can be seen in the driving seat. I printed it out, cut around it and mounted it onto card. I attached it to a long strip of card so that it could be pulled across the card. I mounted it all onto a cream mat and a burgundy base 

The corners are embossed and the wording across the top says "0-60 in 3.2 seconds". I printed this out in bubble font to replicate the car dials. Pulling the happy birthday strip moves the car across the card.
Check out the DT designs on Gill's blog and good luck with the challenge.

Hi Val - welcome back! Love your son's card with the clever slider and the photo makes it very personal. I bet he'll treasure this one!

That is a really clever card and I bet he was really pleased to get a personalised wish for his birthday

Lovely card Val and I am sure Keir will love the slider idea too.
