For A Special Man

This is a tiny bit different than the card I did and you'll see on the Tuesday Throwdown challenge blog when you go check out the challenge, but after seeing the picture I decided it needed/had to have those three little brads!

Yep, it's time again for another challenge at Tuesday Throwndown and our theme is For A Special Man.  Our sponsor this time is Fred She Said who also provided all the images for the DT to use.  Be sure and head on over to the challenge blog to see all the wonderful inspiration by the DT and then enter our challenge for a chance to win a wonderful prize package from Fred She Said.

I used this pre-colored pick up truck and then sponged in some clouds behind it.  It's framed out in some Kraft and blue and then Paper Studio patterned paper, which was mounted on Kraft.  The twill ribbon was added and as an afterthought, as I said, the tiny brads were added.

Oh Lynn - this is amazing, love the way you have accented the background with the clouds, and those three brads really so finish the card to perfection.

Oh, Lynn, you used one of my favorite images to make this card with and the papers and twill are ideal for a guy card. I used this image tons of times for OWH cards.

LOVE your wonderful man card Lynn!! This truck image is my favorite and love the clouds, makes it a complete scene. The plaid and twill ribbon are the perfect accents to go with the old truck :)

NanaConnie said...

WOW on the sky, Lynn! I love how you made the whole thing just come alive with the clouds. And I agree about the three brads. Great touch. I did get a card done and chose this same image but then my camera died so I had no way to photograph the card for a post. :-( Oh, well, yours is good enough for both of us.

Carol L said...

This is one awesome card, Lynn! The plaid and the old truck are made for each other. Add in that burlap, and by George, we have a winner! Nice job, my friend.

Brenda said...

Wow, this is an amazing card Lynn!! I love that truck and I love the papers you have used to dress this card up with. Those brads are perfect too. I just can't believe this image was already colored and you didn't hand color it!! Oh yeah, this is one fabulous card!! Hugs, Brenda

I love that image and your card looks terrific! I agree-the card really needed those brads!

MaryH said...

Fred has the best colored images, and I love this truck. Will have to check it out. Been a while since I splurged over there. Loved the checked background paper with this ole truck, and you're really nailing those clouds. Good work on that. The burlap ribbon with the brads was a wonderful finishing touch too. Really a special card. Hope this is for Mr. Jim. TFS & Hugs

Marilyn said...
