SSS ´Thank You´ Wednesday Challenge

Hello again,
As promised, I will share another project with you straight away:
I rented a 70s campervan for my summer holidays, and in order to express my special thanks to the lovely owners, I wanted to create an extra-special thank-you-card.
Have a look:
I must say I´m actually quite proud of the background I´ve created here, because this was the first time I used embossing paste! Actually, ´translucent´ embossing paste (on white watercolor cardstock). I´ve used distress inks for the background and made sure not to blend them too much because I didn´t want the background to be too distracting (compared to the quite flashy 70´s van). I heat embossed the van on colored cardstock (I think this orange looks almost like an original from the 70s haha).
To finish the card and to round it all up I´ve heat embossed the sentiment in white on blue vellum.
I really like my creation, and especially for one particular reason: The van owner was so happy when she received this card fully unexpectedly & in the end that´s what makes me extra happy!
I hope you like this project as much as I do & if you have questions, please feel free to contact me.
And: This project is specifically dedicated to the latest SSS Wednesday ´Thank you´ challenge: http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/wednesdaychallenge/
