Scrap the Boys June challenge

So it's winter, already!. It is wet and drizzly here in Melbourne this weekend, perfect weekend for scrapping. So I have managed to get this challenge done for Scrap the Boys.
So for this challenge, I was basically inspired by the colours, even though I struggle to scrap with such restrictive tones of black and white. However, for this challenge, I chose to get grungy, and I had fun with it. 
My husband, for as long as I have known him (30 years) has always wanted a Ford Mustang. Every time he sees one, he is literally drooling, lol. One day, he might just get one - maybe it will be our retirement car - hahaha. So this photo is of him admiring a Mustang, at a display of vintage cars in Melbourne on Australia Day. 
I stamped the background with a variety of stamps, then used the patterned papers, corrugated cardboard and washi tape to create the rest of the background. I used Charms creations chevrons and a tab to embellish with. I am really pleased with this layout, despite my hesitations with black and white. My husband even really loved this layout, lol. 
Thanks for looking at my layout, and for any comments you may leave.
