A New Truck For My Wife

Good evening lovely bloggers!
Here's a card I made for my nieces husband's Birthday.
He like his vehicles & when I saw this image I thought of him!

My card is a 6"x6" square using smooth white card stock from 
Southfield Stationers The images is also printed on to card stock from Southfields
The papers are from the First Edition Hideaway Stack.
The green paper used for matting is from Lidl

for my card layout.
Sadly I have missed the challenge as I thought it was monthy & not 
every 2 weeks!*sob* *sob*

The image I have used is Gus Tidbits New Truck & the sentiment came with it!
I coloured it up with Promarkers from Letraset
As you can see I distressed all the edges using a pair of scissors.

The buttons were from a Papermania Capsule Collection

I decorated the inside of the card too. 
You can just about see it if you peek round the corner! lol
Thanks for dropping in!
My card was made with the following challenges in mind as
