Happy Birthday Dad!

Once a year my Dad has a birthday and I have the challenge of trying to make a "boy" card. This year I knew I wanted to use the truck stamp set. My Dad had this old Chevy truck when he was younger so I wanted to recreate this on the card. His truck was green and white so I made mine green and white.
I love these sketch challenges from Stamping 411! This is what I used to create the layout.
I was so excited to use my roller!
Because of the stamp on the roller and the pattern of the buildings I had to manipulate the sketch a little bit. I love the way it turned out!

I didn't have any grey paper so I inked a cotton ball and rubbed it around on a piece of white. It worked perfectly and I had a lot of fun trying this fun new look!
Of course the inside I had to use the roller again and stamp my saying. For a little extra I did my cotton ball thing again.

My Dad LOVED the truck and I am so proud of how it turned out!
