I know my cards always look a bit better in person than in there pictures, but this one takes the cake on that.  The truck is actually a really cool sparkly blue, which wan nearly impossible to photograph.  I kind of captured it in one of the photos, but it still is a lot cooler in person.  Aghhh!  I know a better camera, better post editing, better this, better that….I am trying to work with what i have. 🙁  The silver ring on the card is aluminium foil.  My husband saw it and thought I had used some cool type of paper, which if I had it probably wouldn’t have fought back quite as much.  I made this using designs from and to submit to Tiddly Inks Challenge #184…One for the boys!!, and to submit to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Father’s Day/For A Guy, as well as to submit to Tuesday Morning Sketches #355, and I used this sketch:
