Totally unplanned and of course being the good Aunt that I am (lol) I am thinking that this will be a tradition for me to make his "even" birthday cards with this image!

Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
When buying a used car, punch the buttons on the radio.
If all the stations are rock and roll, there's a good chance the transmission is shot.
This week our sponsor is Sandi Samples!
This truck from Sandi is actually one of the first digis I ever attempted.
I received it when we had a digi image challenge at The Outlawz and I was trying out something new!
Size: 5.5 x 5.5
I printed the image on some mottled blue DP then added additional color with my Prisma Color pencils.
I added glaze to the headlights, stamped the image on the door to mimic an old work truck sign and added a touch of glitter to the star with a black glitter pen I bought from Ikea a while back (best gel pens ever!)
After fussy cutting it out, I added it the card base with foam dimensionals.

Now - A funny story about this image!
My nephew is a car buff. (That comes from growing up with a dad & grandfather who are into buying and restoring Studebaker's).Using Sandi's image, I made this card for his 16th birthday!
This year he turns 18! I had decided a while ago that I wanted to use this image for his card, so Sandi sponsoring this weeks challenge was a great reason to pull in out and get to work!
Not even thinking about the fact the I used it for his 16th birthday!
Not even thinking that I made the truck the same color!
(Wonder if he will notice LOL!)
Thanks for looking. And stop by Through The Craft Room Door to play along with us!
