Hi All, Diane with you today
with my card for this weeks challenge which is Father's Day.

I started my card by embossing Crafts Too Leafy Tree.
I wanted a deep impression, so I embossed on a water color paper.

I cut the old truck from Impression Obsession Classic Truck.
The body of the truck, I wanted a nice sheen,
so I used So Silk Glamour Green card stock.
The rails on the back and the tires were cut using
papers int he collection from Classy Fall Card stock bundle.
This bundle is a great way to try these amazing papers,
as you get different colors in the package!

For the hubcaps I used silver sequins.

Here is a side view to give you an idea of the detail this die offers.
I just love this die and it's beautiful detail!

I added an Impression Obsession kitty to the back
and a few Impression Obsession Small Bird Set.
