Off Roading Truck card

Here is a little card I made for my son's classmate.  Bryce (my 8 year old) loves that each and every member of his class gets a handmade card for his or her birthday. We usually make it together, but I assembled this card while Bryce was at school.  
I used "The Guy Stack" from DCWV for all the patterned paper. As you can see the blue bg paper has a glossy diamond plate pattern and the second hill is also glossy.

The hill and mountain are cut from Paper Doll Dress Up. 
The clouds are from Create a Critter at 1" and 3/4".

I used DCWV shimmer paper for the layers of the truck, blue for the truck body and silver for the bumpers. This truck is cut a 1 3/4" from Boys will Be Boys. The tires are up on pop dots and the truck is attached to the card base with a second layer of pop dots. I added some Star Dust Stickles to the headlight.

I inked the edges of the hills and mountains with black ink. The sentiment is printed on Post-it Adhesive Craft Paper. I used the Dinosaura font for the adorable sentiment that Bryce came up with! :)
