Boyz to men!

Good evening everyone.  I thought I would treat you all to another card today as my first post today was so early!!

I was given a theme for this card as the wonderful dad that will recieve this loves vintage tractors.  So as I had none in my stash of stamps or in my decoupage sheets I had to hunt the good  old internet.  And this is the image I came up with.  I have used an embossed card as a backing sheet for the card and inked the edge for a distressed look.
The tractor has been printed 3 times and decoupaged and the first one has been cut out with a nesties die, inked around the edge with brown and black.

The sentiments have been punched......

and distressed in the same way.

Quick and simples!

Hope you like it.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges

Thanks for stopping by.  Hugs XXX
