a sketch challenge

This is a card I made for a sketch challenge on Julee's blog Poetic Artistry. Check out her blog it's great!! I have been wanting to use this little truck for a while and just haven't yet. It has been in the neglected pile for a long time now!! My color inspiration was from Corinne at Stamping with Roxy (I also used her cool ribbon tying trick too!!). She made a cute card with the brown, olive & guava. I threw in blue cuz I just needed one more color! I am going to make another card with this color combo...I LOVE IT!! It's so pretty! :) I colored the truck with my blender pens and I layered, inked edges and distressed all over the card. Underneath all the brads I punched a little circle with my regular ol' paper punch just to jazz them up a bit. I used my chocolate "fat" ribbon cuz any excuse to put it on a card is a good one! Enjoy...I will have at least one more post later this evening and maybe 2! So check back in when you get a minute! (oh sorry the pic is a little dark...it's raining and dark outside so it's the best I could get...what are ya gonna do?) Thanks for stoppin' by today! :)
