Pedal to the Metal

I do enjoy creating masculine cards these days. It used to phase me but having been on the DT at The Male Room has cured me of that by now. This card is no exception to the others I've posted yesterday and today in that it is very late, but as the challenge runs for two weeks I did think it would be OK and that my team mates would forgive me!
The theme is Metal 

The embossed background was black card stock which I rubbed over with antique silver after passing it through the Big Shot , it has quite an amazing metal-like appearance. I stamped the silver car, masked it and stamped the black cars and I made the sentiment using my computer- shame is we'd run out of black ink, so the monochrome effect was not as I had hoped, but I still think it works. I am entering the challenge at Cards4Guyz with this one. It's my first time over there and the challenge is 'No patterned Paper'
 Note to DT team mates-I will try to do better this week and post my cards on time! Thanks for looking!
