Stamping Vacation DT - When I Grow Up Challenge - Truck Driver

This month at Stamping Vacation the theme for the When I  Grow Up challenge is 'Truck Driver"(ends 3rd April).  I found this truck image on Blogart Toon and the little fellows name is Spike....I found him at The CraftyMonkey.  I coloured both of them with my watercolour pencils and added some silver metallic pen to the truck.  The base card is Lava Bazzill Card, I round the front edge corners.  Adhered the truck image with the tab on the side saying 'Big Wishes'.  Then cut out Spike and added him to the card with 3D foam.  I found some left over pieces of Stampin Up Design Paper...not sure of the name sorry. I stuck to the spine of the card and wrapped it around to the back.  Added three black eyelets.  Then finished the card with the black border sticker and the black Happy Birthday sticker from Sticker Store.  When I had let the card sit for a little I thought it needed just a little more so grabbed my fine tip black pen and drew two lines around the edges of the image.

Now it's your turn.  I would so love to come and visit your blog to see your 'Truck Driver' related creations.  

The prize this month at Stamping Vacation is a $25.00 gift certificate to the store of YOUR (winner's) choice.
