Loads of Wishes

Hi!  Call me crazy ... it's way pass my bedtime but I wanted to craft tonight and it's a long weekend so why not?  This is one of the projects I made tonight.  I had to motivate myself to make a card for PTI's Make It Monday Challenge to use a vellum sentiment strip.  I saw the little truck from Tiny Treats Birthday set and thought it would make a cute boy card.  Then I remembered how Debbie Olson had used the handwriting line stamp from School Time to make a road for her school buses to drive on.  So that inspired me to make this vellum strip road/sentiment.  It was actually my second try.  I had first stamped it in rich cocoa on the vellum but thought hey, white lines on roads so I stamped it again with fresh snow and layered the smokey shadow cardstock in the back for better contrast.

The trucks are popped up as well as the top kraft layer.  Also used the Book Print impression plate.  It took me a while to decide what color my 3rd truck would be.  Blue or green?  Primary colors or traffic light colors to kind of match my theme.  I kept asking my hubby and he kept saying off things like black.  That doesn't help me much.  In the end I went with primary colors.  Then I thought the top half looked kind of blank and missing something.

Definitely will be going to sleep now.  Thanks for reading and have a great day!
