OCC challenge - Sketch

Hey everyone! This month, the challenges are Our Creative Corner are being hosted by yours truly. This week, I am challenging you to create something based on this sketch I made:

And here is my card for this challenge:
I decided to use it to make my nephew's 16th birthday card. I don't usually do masculine cards well and to be honest, for the past few years, I have purchased my older nephews' birthday cards! GASP! I had an easy time when they were younger boys, but now that they are older, it is difficult for me. But, since Curtis is turning 16, I thought I would use this fabulous old antique truck image from Artistic Outpost on his card and give a more vintage feel. I hope he will like this card.
Materials: PAPER Crafty Creations, Deep Spring Green, Brown Colormates (WorldWin Papers) STAMPS Home (Artistic Outpost), Alphabet Set (unknown) INK Versafine-Vintage Sepia (Tsukineko), Palette Hybrid-Jardin Moss (Stewart Superior) OTHER Oval Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Edge distresser (Tonic), Dew Drops colored with brown Sharpie (Robin's Nest)

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to drop by OCC and check out what all the other fabulous design team members created for this challenge!

Have a creatively wonderful weekend!
