i LOVE my card that i'm sharing today! 



i used the new whimsical wheels stamp set! i colored the truck with copics! i just LOVE that it's putting part of the sentiment in place (ps - the sentiment was heat embossed!). that truck is my favorite one i think...though to be honest, they're all amazing adorable!


the background was created with distress ink! and then i used the star images from your view and heat embossed them in clear, i thought it was a totally fun, subtle touch! :) the side of the card was created by using some gear chipboards from wycinanka (LOVE them!) and then spraying liberally with a clear sparkle and frost shine spray!  then i removed the chipboard pieces for the subtle look! love it!

so that's my card! 
be sure to continue on the hop for your chance to win a stamp set of your choice! 

enjoy! :)

  5. Marina is right - lifting the letter with the digger is so clever! And I love your background - I cant do blending in brown - it always looks awkward (is that the right word?) However, your card is just awe-some! :)
