Simon Says Transport

Here's my card for the Simon Says Stamp challenge which is "transport." I love this old truck image from Tim Holtz and think it always makes the greatest masculine cards. I stamped it on a scrap of retired SU! True Thyme cardstock and clear embossed it before cutting with a SB labels 18 die. The background was done with a SB kickin' rubber M-bossabilities folder and sponged with some true thyme ink to distress it. The sentiment panel was stamped on cream cardstock using a SNSS image and sentiment. The dsp and card base were scraps from my bin and I don't know the mfr. The stars were done with a SU! mini merry punch using more scraps, and 3 mini brads completed this card.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend, and thanks for stopping by!
