Stars & Stamps Midweek Challenge

When I saw this 12x12 sheet of old, wonderful automobiles by Graphic45, I knew what I would use for the ongoing OWH Muscle Challenge and today's challenge as well (Create a Father's Day card)!
This is my 3rd attempt. I started with black as the background. Way too dark. So I tried the brown. Much better!

CS: (browns) Darice
CS: (red) Bazzill
Image: from "A Proper Gentleman" collection by Graphic45
Sentiment: printed on white CS and chalked with Inkadinkado Soft Tones
Rectangle cuts: Spellbinders w/ Cuttlebug

That's such a great car graphic! I can see why you first thought to go with black, but the brown did turn out perfect!
