I used this to make a masculine birthday card and went funky by paper piecing the truck. The only problem is now the truck can't go out on a "rainy" day - get it - paper pieced rather than colored???
I cut out and popped up the paper pieced portion of the truck, added some shine to the wheels, windshield and bumpers with crystal effects. Lightly colored the gifts and hair with matching cajon craze watercolor crayons.
Paper pierced the main panel and the image panel, added buttons with blue string and a band of blue string with the courderoy button in the center. Popped up the sentiment and main panel on dimensionals.
I used Wanda's basic design, changed the colors and dsp and theme to b/day instead of Easter.
Thanks for taking a look!

Pamzi, this is just too adorable!! I love this sweet, funky trunk and hate to see it retiring from the SU cattie, but I'll be holding on to it for more masculine cards! Thanks for the kind words...((HUGS))!

Delightful creation to honor the Queen for the Day, Fruitcake! I never cared for this set, but I can't say that any more because I love what you've done with it! Hugz.

Oh Pamzi I love this!! Your posts make me laugh, I love the way that you look at the world...and this card is just delightful. Your idea to stamp on DP works wonderfully and the other papers are perfect together. Piercing is fabulous, rain or shine! Thanks for sharing - big Hugz!
