Bearly Mine Challenge - June 2014 - One for the boys

 It is the first day of the month and therefore time for another challenge over at the Bearly Mine Inspiration and Challenges Blog.  This month the topic is "one for the boys".
For this card I have gone for the colour scheme of blue and brown - very manly.
  
   
The backing papers I have used are Bearly Mine Designs Krafty Wishes, Plain and Simple, Festive Fun and The Boys Zone.

The image I have used is called "Vintage Truck" and is by Delicious Doodles.  I have coloured the image in with promarkers, torn around the edge and inked with Tim Holtz's Broken China distress ink.

I have used one of the blue backing papers, put through a Tim Holtz cog embossing folder and inked with Tim Holtz's Gathered Twigs distress ink.

I have finished the card off with some Papermania Glitterations, X-cut cog die-cuts coloured with Gathered Twigs distress ink, brads, sentiment off the computer and some ribbon.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
