Bloggers Challenge - Masculine

As Friday rolls by again, it's another Bloggers Challenge. This week is Fathers Day, I choose to just go masculine.As the saying goes " Life is just a journey", and I think this card exemplifies this. The backgrounder license plate is from CHF, and the vehicle is from B-line. I added the little map tape from my stashola, as well as the gears that were in the "leftover" box.

I used the Pulled Glimmers tut from the current TJNL, and added a little more red ink to the bottom part, then I ran the piece thru my new brick embossing folder for some texture. The car was painted with Creative Inspirations Paints. I did add a clear thingamajig to the car description that I lightly dabbed with some alcohol ink.

Check out what everyone else has done by clicking on the BC bar on my sidebar. Thanks everyone for stopping by, and have a fun weekend! hugz.............

Gerrie, this is fantastic!!! I love the pulled glimmers, and the awesome brick texture on the backgrounder - I never would have thought to do that! The image looks wonderful too, along with your "leftovers", tee hee. Beautifully done.
