ODBDSLC193 Metal or sweets

Our Daily Bread Designs challenge this week was metal or sweets, I chose to go with Metal on my card.  You can find out all the details about this challenge on their Blog HERE .

As you can see by the picture I couldn't get a good shot of the card without getting my reflection in the background, I tried so many different angles it was just crazy, the ones were I didn't show up as bad were blurry.  This will be going to my great nephew turning 18 next month.

I used silver embossing powder on the truck and then colored it with markers.

Oh, Connie, what a GREAT guy card! Your nephew is going to LOVE this one! Great design, and I think the metal in your card looks like it really came off a truck! Amazing! So glad to see you again this week for the ODBD Shining the Light challenge, sweet friend! Warm hugs!

Masculine perfection, Connie! I just got a similar embossing folder for guy cards. I know you have a lot of guys in your family so you'll get good use out of this. Love how you embossed the truck in silver, too.
