No super bells or whistles to this card either....just a big o red car with the number 6 on it...The car actual stands on it on..The HAPPY BIRTHDAY through the window is on the underneath paper which is also cut in a car. Didn't want to be fancy on this card because I know after about a few days it will end up in his toy box. (smile)
