Va Va Vroom!

Another combined challenge from me today and I thought I would use it to make a birthday card for my brother! He will be 39 on 10th October and doesn't do serious at all so this card will really appeal to him! The card fits the midweek little extra on the DCM blog and a challenge set by Nicky on the Just Bex forum
This is what the DCM team set this week
Cars, Boats, Trains & Planes is the theme for our Little Extra challenge this week. A good chance to stock up on kids cards and make a few of those poor, unloved "cards for men", maybe? How about "congratulations on Passing your Driving test" or "Got your Wings" for newly qualified pilots? - ok so we may be reaching a bit far with that one, but you never know! Basically, what we'd like you to do is put some transport on your cards this week, how you do it is up to you
and these were Nicky's instructions
And your next challenge is...........to make a folding card like the one below . It's made from one sheet of cardstock, and is very straightforward! Take one sheet of 12"x12" cardstock, and score lines at 4" intervals both vertically and horizontally to make a 3x3 grid, like this:
Then cut away each corner square, and you'll be left with this:

and here is my card.

All card, paper and rub ons are by Doodlebug.

That's it for now. Wedding stationery calls!
