Hi and good morning.

I made today's card a couple of days ago in response to a couple of challenges over on MFP: 

The SS challenge was to use a transportation vehicle and include a greeting on the card front, and the sketch challenge was as follows:

It's a simple little card.  Measurements are 51/2 x 51/2 and the base layer is Soft Suede.  I used Crumb Cake SU DSP Stack Neutrals for the first layer and stamped it with the flourish from the Creative Elements stamp set.  The hubcaps are heat embossed with SU silver ep; however, they aren't reflecting light in the photo.  (I guess I need to improve the light source.)  The clouds were sponged with Bashful Blue, using a scalloped punch as the mask.  I colored the truck image with various SU inks and watercolor brushes.  Double punched the side border with a MS punch and finished things off with crochet trim, jute twine, a vintage button from a local thrift shop and a Tiny Trinket.


That's all I have for today.  I'm a little behind on my cards and will be spending the day in the craft room.  

Have a lovely day and happy crafting!!

You knew I would love this one, right? I am loving your coloring and that vintage button with the lace, jute, and punched border. I am imagining that is you driving that truck bringing me a load of pumpkins because you know I love pumpkings (that g is for you). LOL That card is just gorgeous as usual! TFS!

Shea said...

I'm bringing you pumpkings, Sweetie!! LOL!! (And thank you!) :)

Shea, another gorgeous card! You need to post these over on StampNation too, even if just in the gallery. I know you are busy but I know everyone would love to see them.

Thanks, Kristie!! I'll put them in the Gallery. There's enough going on at SN without my cards bombarding them. :)
