Road work ahead

I was inspired to make today's card by an article in the June issue of Cardmaking & Papercrafts about making masculine cards using die cuts. I apologize for the poor quality of the picture but my camera battery died and I had to scan the card - my scanner never seems to get the colours quite right.
The papers and die cuts are all from Abbey Road. The wheels on the van are circle-punched from the patterned paper, then attached loosely with brads (so they actually turn).
