Trucks are not Girly, Right?

Happy Friday everyone! Here is my attempt at something "not girly"-- I agree with Lori, I love to put flowers, bling, ribbon and lace on everything-- it is hard to come up with something not girly. But I think my masculine birthday card based on our current sketch came out pretty well-

While trying to decide what to do I had a sudden flash of this green pickup that I had seen on the Country Drive from Echo Park stickers and knew that would be the focus of my card. There are a lot of colors in this paper line but I stuck with just red, green and blue for my boy colors.

I popped up my pickup truck with some foam squares and then filled up the back with "Happy Birthday" strips. I couldn't resist putting just a little Stickles glitter glue on it for some detail and a few green hearts off the same sticker page as the pickup. (Hearts can be on a guy card, right?)

Have a great weekend and be sure to enter our sketch challenge for your chance to win!

Jamie, great job on the non-girly card! (I missed that this week was not supposed to be girly, and went completely frou-frou!) Love your card - and what an ingenious way to use that truck! Awesome!

Thanks Gini! And don't worry, your card was perfect!!!!!!!!! This is my second go at the sketch so that's why it's "Not girly!" You can tackle that one next week. :):)
