Nifty Fifties Birthday

Hey everyone! Hope you all had a fabulous week! Wow, I can't believe we are in March already. Before you know it, it's going to be summer. I sure hope so!!
I want to share with you today a card I made for a co-workers father for his birthday. She said he grew up on a farm, so this little truck should remind him of that. After I took the pics and before I gave Kim the card I added a cloud to the top left corner. I just couldn't stand it so bare there. It looked so much better.
Standard A2 size card
Truck cut at 2 1/4 inches from the Nifty Fifties cartridge
Cardstock and Sentiments - Papertrey Ink
Ribbon and brads from stash
D'vine Swirls embossing folder
Also used atg gun, dimensionals, glossy accents, memento inks, zip dry glue and 2 way glue pen
I used glossy accents on the window, bumpers and tires. I also used my finger dauber with some brown ink to grundge up the truck a little. I made the road centre line with some thin yellow ribbon. I used brads on the centre of the tires as hubcaps 
Well, thanks for stopping by today.
Take Care and Keep Creating,

I see this cartridge used all the time. I think I may need to think about getting it myself.

What a great card,

Neat card (I hate to call a guy's card 'cute'.) My brother restored an old truck that looks just like this one, so he would flip over this card.

Love the old truck on your card! We had a truck like that when I was a kid on our farm. Same colour! No seat belts of car seats back then! It was always full of sawdust and timothy but it was so much fun to go for a ride in it to the feedstore and sometimes, if we were good and didn't cause too much trouble, we would get a treat at the counter...which we mostly did!
Thank you for the trip down memory lane! :)

Great classic. I have just started using Glossy Accents and I love it. The first time I accidently put my hand in, so I have leanred to be careful. I just used some last night and checked this morning and it is perfect. I bet the cloud looked good after you added it.
