Happy Birthday!


Hi, Friends!

Just popping in quick today to share with you a card I made for my brother-in-law.  His birthday is next week and he used to have an old brown pick up truck.  I hope this card qualifies for the vintage challenge over at the The Male Room.  My brother-in-law, Don, loves vintage cars.  I can remember when I was a teen he had an old black car, which looked like a Model T.  I'm not good with car styles, so I don't know exactly the make of car.  But, anyways, I just thought it was so fun that he gave us a ride in the old classic car.

And,  here is a photo of the card...


For my card I started with a blue card base.  Next came the background panel that was brushed with blue china oxide ink for the sky.  The house image is from Paper Sweeties.  The truck and trees are from SU.  And, the sentiment is from Hero Arts.  All images were colored with copics.

Well, that's all for now.  I'll be back soon to reveal some Valentine cards that I've made.  Take care!

Hugs,
Maria
