Happy Birthday, Evan!

Hi everyone.  Evan's birthday was last week, but we just had our family dinner last night to celebrate, so waited to post a picture of the card I made for him after he got it.  Evan is an automotive mechanic by trade ... and loves trucks ... especially old ones.  When I saw this great digi stamp from Fred, She Said ... I had to get it.  Hope you like.

* * * * *

Stamps:  Old Truck (Fred, She Said); Be Happy Sentiments (Amy R)
Paper:  White (C.C. Designs)
Ink:  Copics:  YG95, R29, E44, E77, E49, W4, 0 (colorless blender); Stampin' Write markers:  Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight
Accessories & Tools:  Cappucino twine (The Twinery), Stamp-a-ma-jig

I'm still learning lots with my copics and have a long way to go, but I'm happy with how this turned out.  I used the colorless blender to remove color from the truck to give it an aged look.


Just a couple of quick notes ... first of all, I'm so pleased that I made "A Cut Above" at Paper Players challenge last week (use Silver or Gold) ... with my Christmas Trimmings card.  Thanks to Helen for picking my card!!

Also, I have withdrawn my entries for the Design Team call at Inkspirational.  I just decided that it wasn't the right fit for me at this time.

Great masculine card, Loll! And your Christmas Trimmings card was a well deserved Cut Above!

This is SUCH a great masculine card, Lolly, and how absolutely perfect for Evan! Congrats on the shoutout at Paper Players!!

Quick confirmation: did you cut a little slit on the slope of the card for your twine? Thanks, Dolly
