When I first looked at the picture, I was tempted to design the layout of my card to mimic the layout of the picture. But in the end I was short on time and I opted to just use the colours in the picture as my inspiration.
The most recent issue of Paper Crafts magazine had a sketch in it that I thought was fantastic and couldn't wait to use.
Here's the end result:
November is chock full 'o birthdays in my family, so I have a lot of b-day cards to make. I always find the guys cards the hardest ones to make, so I thought I would start there, and make a card for my older brother's birthday. I think he'll like this one.
I thought I would colour in the apples that are sitting in the back of the pick-up, so that they would 'pop' on the front of the card. The end result is a bit more subtle than I was expecting - but I think I like that even more :)
cardstock: chocolate chip, certainly celery, pumpkin pie (SU!)
stamps: Countryside (SU!)
