Birthday Sundaes Challenge #11

Hello Crafters and welcome to another Birthday Sundaes post,
This week the challenge at Birthday Sundaes is to create a mascline birthday card. I always seem to struggle with these and tend to make them look childish no matter how hard I try so I decided to try something a bit different and instead of a Cricut cut I used a free digital stamp I found at in a scrap creations and my Prisma colour pencils. (All thought I did use a Cricut cut for the sentiment label, it's from Once Upon a Princess...I know funny cartridge to use to make a manly card, lol) When I saw this digital I knew exactly what I wanted it for. My fiance Brian is starting to fix up an old (classic, I think he calls it lol) truck. I am sure he will point out this image is nothing like his truck because of the details but to me all old trucks look the same lol. Brian's birthday is on June 9th so this challenge couldn't have come at a better time although I do need to increase my stash of manly cards too! Hop on over to the Birthday Sundaes blog for some more inspiration and then link up your project so we can check it out!
Happy Crafting!

How perfect. I sure Brian enjoys this card. I can't believe you colored that truck with pencils. It looks great!

Perfect "manly" birthday card, Tara. I am going to try and do this challenge again this week but it will be a real challenge for me unlike the "lace & pearls" which came easy. LOL!

Hugs, Heather

You did a fantastic job coloring this truck!! And I do agree all trucks look the same LOL!! Mike's bday is June 14th and all 3 of the guys I work for have bdays in July and August. I need to make manly cards yet I'm stumped lol! I love the embossed background on the card, it's perfect for your image.

This card is very masculine Tara! The truck looks awesome and that background is perfect! I love the frames from Once Upon a Princess too! They work for everything!

Great card Tara. You colored the image wonderfully. I love the embossed background. It's absolutely perfect to go with the truck and the masculine theme. Fantastic job.
