Hi All, today I made my card for the July Scrap The Boys Card Challenge.  It is a birthday card for my Son-in-Law and I colored the pickup truck to match his real one!

Pickup in Pieces Birthday Card

This month is a sketch challenge and the prize is posted below.

Here is the sketch, and we would love if you would play along with us!  Just click here to get there!

I used the pickup truck from Honey Bee Stamps, Little Pickup.  I colored it with alcohol markers.  I actually stamped two of them, so when I die cut the circles out of the truck sections I didn’t have to worry about overlap.

I mounted the sections of the truck onto grey cardstock circles that I die cut one size up from the truck sections.  I then mounted that onto CTMH tone on tone cardstock that was cut about 2/3 of the way down to create two sections.  I cut the Happy Birthday using my Elizabeth Craft Design die, cutting it out of two different shades of blue to create a shadow by mounting the lighter layer slightly off-center of the bottom layer.  I added this to a white card base and added distressed silver sequins from Close To My Heart and called it done.

Please head on over to the Scrap The Boys blog to see all the inspiration and we would love to see your card entered in the challenge too!  Just click here to get there!  I hope you enjoyed today’s card and are inspired to join in on the fun.  Please follow our blog by clicking on the “Follow Me” button and Like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram so you don’t miss a thing.  Thanks for stopping by!
