Vint Truck Road Trip TY Card with rem Tag

Used mostly Tim Holtz items to make this Thank You card with a removable Vintage Truck Road Trip theme Tag.

Used TH embossing: truck tire embossing border on the red card base across the center & words on the brown layer.

Used vellum to hold the removable tag.

Used calligraphy which works wonderfully when I do not have a stamp sentiment with these words.

Used a sketch that you can see below that I rotated & got creative with.
