Fire Truck card

My husband asked me to create a card for a fellow firefighter who recently retired from the Fire Department.  I used the Independence Day Cricut cartridge to make the fire truck.  I added “T1” to the side to represent the truck company the retiree worked on, and added clear Stickles to make it sparkle.  I also outlined the truck with a glitter pen to give it some definition.  The blue, red and silver overlay was made with the CTMH Artbooking cartridge.  I used Cricut Craft Room to Hide Contour on the red and blue overlays, and added a rectangular piece of silver paper to the back.  For help with CCR and Hide Contour watch this video on YouTube by Joy Tracey of Obsessed With Scrapbooking.  The Congrats sentiment was stamped on a banner cut from the Small Talk Frames & Tags Cricut cartridge.  I added foam dimensional tape to the banner and the fire truck.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
