I did wind up with this cute little red car though, so by putting him on a checkered background I hope you get the "race" idea. This will be a birthday card - because the years "race by"
I made the background by using a Stamping Spot directly to paper.
Added the checked gingham ribbon for his "road"
The sentiment stamp is retired (sorry again)
For the car:
Car top - large oval - trimmed slight slant on each "end" - draw line near top
Card body - wide oval - trimmed flat top and bottom to make it approximately an inch thick, snip in on bottom corners with 3/4 inch circle punch for wheel wells - trace edge of large oval for "hood"
Windshield - part of butterfly punch - snip flat on one "eye"
Color of eyes - blue and black circles from new punch pack
Headlights - slot punch - trimmed to slant
Grill/Mouth - small oval next to small oval hole
Tires - 3/4 inch circle - trimmed flat on each side
