Classic Trucks

Mr. Gears asked me to make a for a friend of his going through a tough time. I wanted to make something cheery, yet not at all girly. I kept it pretty simple for easy mailing and am happy with the end result.

Hopefully the truck will count to represent travel.

Use lots of yellow and to cheer someone.
OWH Any Occasion Challenge
Oldie But Goodie Challenge #13 ~ Spring is in the Air
I used bright spring colors and dug out one of my oldest SU sets.
365 Cards Day 363 ~ Faux Frame
I matted my image and my sentiment creating more formal frames, and then put both on a piece of DP and tore the edges to create a more informal frame for both.
