Hello and welcome! When I saw that Just for Fun Stamps challenge for this month was a 50's theme, I immediately thought of using these car stamps, along with a paper pack that has some polka dots and retro patterns. I originally was going to do this for Father's Day cards, but I missed that boat and now I need birthday cards!

I made two versions of the card. I bet cardmakers who read blogs will like the CAS one, but I am going to use the more busy one to give to the Birthday Boy, because I have noticed a lot of people who aren't online really don't follow trends and do like patterned paper too! What do you think?
I did add glossy accents to the headlights and windshields.
This is how I stamped the insides of the cards. I used generation stamping on the flags. I think it finishes off the card in a fun way and you have to love that font!
Supplies: Crafty Secrets Car Classics stamp set, Memento black ink, alcohol markers, My Mind's Eye Hootenanny paper pad, Glossy accents, Darice embossing folder.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
