Rev It Up with Cards in Envy

Let's REV IT UP!  For this challenge over at Cards in Envy, we'd like to see your A2 (4.25" x5.5") card creations that feature things with motors that one can "rev up." Think motorcycles, cars, airplanes, helicopters etc.  Any transportation type vehicle that has a motor that revs up.  We can't wait to see what you create and share!
Here is my card with a helicopter dragging along a birthday wish.
I used American Craft cardstock, Echo Park - Scoot paper and Element stickers.
This challenge runs from today, August 5th thru August 18th, 11:55 p.m. (Central Time). 
I hope that you will play along with us. 
Remember, your card needs to be relatively flat (no lumpy, bumpy embellishments, flowers, buttons etc.) The total thickness of your  card and the envelope should be no more than 1/4" so it will fit through the USA post office guide, if it's thicker than that, it will cost extra postage and will not be a card for our Cards in Envy challenge.
