I simply LOVE this Old Truck Image from Fred She Said. And since it comes as a digi and also in four pre-colored images, I thought I'd use the Blue Truck today.
The starting inspirations for this card started with a sketch from Sketchy Colors.
Once I had the sketch and the image I thought I was set for an easy peasy card. WRONG! So many indecisions followed. For some reason, I just did not like just the plain blue dot "Wanderful" background paper. So after about an hour of walking back and forth and looking at the design, I dug out an old retired CTMH stamp set with pine trees. Wala!!! Just what it needed.
But then I didn't like the horizontal strip of designer paper I chose for right behind the truck, which was the flip side of the blue dot paper. So, I switched from the dark print to green cardstock and dry embossed with a wood grain embossing folder
The Happy Father's Day is from the CTMH Holiday Tags Stamp Set.
It's amazing how what started out as being a 10 minute card turned out to take several hours. I sure wish I wasn't such a perfectionist.
Here is the sketch I used.
