CTO Challenge # 35



Hello everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Celebrate The Occasion! This time the challenge is "Male Birthday" and you must use METAL.
I cut the truck from Everyday Paper Dolls in several colors and cut apart the pieces for the different layers. I used a silver pen and colored the bumpers and added silver brads to the center of the tires. The wood crate on the back is cut from Freshly Picked that I sized in my Gypsy to fit. I tore a piece for the background and crumpled it up. I then inked the edges and high spots. The metal on the side I embossed with Mesh Texture embossing folder and I also inked this. I attatched it with brads and added more to the side of the mat. The sentiment is stamped and matted.
I hope you will play along this week and don't forget to check out what the rest of the amazing DT has come up with. I can't wait to see what you will create!
