Most days I feel like "I am a day late and a dollar short" with some of the challenges. But not today. This card is going to be for a very special little boy who is turning 3 the end of March. My Great Nephew. He LOVEs Disney Cars Movie and all their characters - so I found this adorable tow truck from the movie at my favorite craft store (it is cardboard not a sticker). All this being said, the card fits three challenges:
First: Today's F4A105 Cards with Character - if this truck does not have character - nothing does - LOL.
Second: To honor today's QFTD101 "Queen Pat" (aka Kokirose). Pat has an amazing gallery and when I saw this card, I knew it was the perfect layout for my card:
I eliminated the stitching, kept the 3 screw brads, but substituted a photo turn for the brad on the half circle. I eliminated the twine and substituted a border punch from MS. I cut the edges of the border and kept the interior only because I thought it resembled tire tracks without the scalloped edges.
Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a closer look. Hope my GN loves it, and I hope you do too.

Your little guy is going to love this card. My 3-year-old grandson is also a big fan of the Disney CARS movies, so I know from where I speak. He'd certainly love it!!! Good job on all three challenges.
