An 'In Joke' themed card

This is the final card made for colleagues at work to sign.  It is for a young man who has only been with us a year, but was invaluable on the recent visit to Berlin.  He knows exactly what the 'in joke' message is all about; suffice it to say, we couldn't have done without him on the visit.
Once again, as the card had to be big enough for all the staff to sign, I worked on a 20cm x 20cm white card blank.  The black mat measures 19.5cm x 19.5cm and the white topper panel 19cm x 19cm.  This panel was painted over with Black, Scarlet and Yellow Ochre Brushos to create a representation of the German flag.
I used the Going Places Cricut cartridge to cut out the coach, plane, train and 'Are we there yet?' icons from white card (2.5" setting) as well as the matching blackout in black card.  These were matted together.
These were then added to the flag background, arranged in a square formation, before the panel was matted onto black card and added to the base card.
