Me being Messy

This card wasn't created with any challenge or occasion in mind. It's just my attempt of being a bit "wild and messy", which isn't exactly two words I would normally use to describe myself as a person. I'm quite the opposite - often having a plan in mind and being systematic.
For this card I tried to focus on combining elements I normally wouldn't  put together and trying not to be too orderly in the way I put the elements together. Like, what are the birds doing together with a vintage car and a row of tickets? And "naughty me", I crinkled the tickets too!
The orderly side of me is not a 100% pleased with this card, but I'm content with my attempt of trying something new, for me that is, so here goes:
1) Card Makin' Mamas - Try Something New (2nd entry)
2) Inspire Me Fridays – Anything Goes
3) LEJ Designs - #17 Vintage
4) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
