Ever since I bought my Black Mirror Card stock I have wanted to use my truck diecut with it. Today I am sharing the last challenge I did which was using either mirror card, foiling, mega flakes, to bring some shine to our card. That was all I needed to make this card for my oldest brothers birthday.
I decided to go with Mega flakes for the leaves on the tree, I used the flutterby glue to add to the stamp with a cosmetic sponge and then stamped onto the tree again and added the mega flakes. I also used my metallic cardstock for the sun. The challenge also had to make a matching envelope so I once again stamped onto the envelope first with my brown ink and this time instead of using the liquid glue I used my glue pen to add some glue to the leaves area and added my flakes, I feel like that may have worked better.
My card base was black so I left the bottom portion the card base, adding a white line for the road. Inks to the white background, using my home made cloud template for the sky.

We are enjoying a day in the mid 80's with less humidity, was able to go on a walk and not feel like I was going to pass out, that sure was nice. Hope you are having a nice weekend.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,
