This fortnight is was Sylvie at Gibmiss's turn to chose the theme. She chose trees...use a tree anywhere on your card. Right away, I wanted to use a stamp I won last year at Marks Finest Papers. It is my NBUS item for this card. I loved it when I won it, and of course still do...but until today, it had never been inked.
This card will be for a friend who is into restoring old vehicles. He will get a kick out of it. I do wish I had coloured it aqua instead of pale blue...it would have showed up more on the card and I have nicer aqua DP. I may just make up a second card and try that colour combination! Once I am home again, I may try a Wink of Stella on the truck, just to perk it up a little.
I kept the card fairly simple. Just a sheet of candy DP from a 6x6 stack and a bit of burlap ribbon behind a snippet of dotty DP from that same stack. Will have to update the stack name later as I am up at the lake...my bad!
The sentiment was prised off a chipboard embellishment. It used to have another dark green circular bit behind it but the shade of green was wrong so I tore it off and substituted a blue scalloped diecut circle.
