I'm going to try and make this a quick post because I have a closet intervention on my agenda today.
This particular closet is where my granddaughter and I kept the stacks of unfinished craft projects, leftovers from finished craft projects and other miscellaneous items we saved for crafting at Nana's. 
Granted I still have grandsons with whom I craft, but the boy stuff is elsewhere.  And as for my granddaughter, she has advanced to making a baby of her own.  That means I am going to be a Great Grandmother in March. 

OK - let's get truckin' or this won't be quick!

Get it now?  Truckin'  Card with a truck on it.  That's as witty as it's gonna get today.
I have been wanting to use that black polka dot paper for a while and thought it would be perfect with this old truck from My Grafico digital images steampunk set.  The paper has a really interesting texture to it.  I paired it with some barn red textured cardstock and barn red ink for the sentiment for just a bit of color.  As always, I printed the image twice then fussy cut the body of the truck and used 1/8" foam tape to raise it a bit (see the faint shadows?).  

This card was made for the following challenges:
Cards in Envy - Masculine Cards (that easily fit in an A2 envelope)
Digi Haven Challenge - Vintage or Old
PunkyyouGirl Challenge - Red and Black
Simply Create Too Challenge #45 - Vintage or Old
Ruby's Rainbow Challenge #62 - It's a Male Thing
Whimsy Stamps Challenge #63 - Masculine cards
Can You Digi It? Challenge #43 - Very Vintage
Digi Sketch Challenge - Vintage and/or Sketch
A Little Bit Crafty Challenge - Clean and Simple
Creatilicious Challenge #54 - For the Boys

Now I'm off to that closet! 
Have a great day!
