Birthday Gus

I made this card for this week's Card Patterns Sketch 93 and for the Bugaboo Blog Anything Goes Challenge.  This adorable New Truck Gus stamp set is a new release from Totally Stampalicious.  I wanted to make something clean and simple since this card will be going to my Father in law for his birthday.  I hope he likes Gus as much as I do!

Supplies used:
Stamps:  New Truck Gus (Totally Stampalicious)
Paper:  Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Basic Black, Very Vanilla
Ink:  Basic Black, Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue
Accessories:  Scallop Edge Punch, Eyelet, Twine, 1 1/4 circle, 1 3/8 circle, Rhinestones

I used little rhinestones for the wheel centers.  The edges of the image panel were brushed with close to cocoa ink.  The top and bottom of the chocolate chip layer have little black tracks made with basic black marker.

Thanks for checking out my card!
