Vintage Truck

I took some time last night to create a card since I will be away this weekend with no time to craft!  I decided to make a vintage masculine card with Stampin Up Countryside set.  Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge this week was to created a vintage card.  I decided to go with a vintage masculine card.  I love the lacy, soft vintage look, but I am always needing more masculine cards.  I embossed the truck using Versamark ink and brown embossing powder.  I then cut out the image and inked the oval edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and matted it on red paper.  Cut a strip of PP and matted that on red paper also.   The background paper is Paper Pizazz from Hobby Lobby.  I fell in love with this paper when I saw it.  It is wood grain with peeling paint.  Looks like the side of our old barn.  I used a distressing tool on the edges of the background paper and added a little Vintage Photo ink to the edges. Layered red and brown ribbon and added a ribbon slide.   Put it all together using the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge #183.
I did get the approval of my 16 year old son on this card!! Thanks for looking. God bless!!
