Happy Father's Day - Classic Car

I'm back again! Tuesday is my day to visit Shirley and Doug and Fran and I make 3 fab cards that Shirley makes up for us. We always have a fun time together, lot's of laughter and chat, pats for the two dogs and Shirley makes us a cappaccino as well.
We also had a meal at a little eatery before heading back home and then I had to do a couple of loads of washing. It wasn't a good drying day today and it was too late to hang them on the line so back to using the clothes rack in front of the fire again!!!
I tidied the kitchen a bit and then found a bit of time to do some commenting on a few blogs. I made tea for us and then had to rush off to choir practice. We have a concert coming up at the end of the month so we only have a few practices left now.  I take a friend home and by the time I left her and got back here, it was rather late.
Thought I had better sit down and come up with a card for today and here is the end product.
The card is a top fold and I used diagonal panels to form a pocket for my tag.

The basecard is SU Early Espresso with a top fold
The Plaid DP is fromWeRMemoryKeepers 6x6 paper stack TRAVEL light
I cut another piece of Early Espresso and then cut it in half diagonally
The striped DP (cut diagonally) is from DaisyD's - Vintage Stripe Patchwork
The Tag was made using SU Sahara Sand cardstock
Black and white gingham ribbon from stash - attached with a staple.
Sentiment is from Creative Expressions - Classic Cars
Car is from the same set, coloured with Copic Markers
Diecut - Sahara Sand backed with a piece of Early Espresso - car was popped up with foam dots.
Tyres on the tag and on the inside are from Kaiser Stamps - On the Move
SU Basic Black Ink
SU Light Grey Ink
