Racing Car Card

This card is for my sister's boyfriend's birthday in a couple of weeks time. He's really into cars so I thought this Smirk decopage would be right up his street and the papers are from October Afternoon Rocket Age pad. I distressed the yellow dotty paper with tea dye after my distress inks workshop at Sir Stampalot yesterday (need lots of practice!!) and finished off with some Anita's ribbon and red cardstock.

My next workshop is on heat embossing - anyone recommend a good heat tool to invest in? I'm going to put one on my Christmas list but want one that will do a good job.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Tuesday Morning Sketches - Sketch
