2nd challenge

As mentioned in the previous post, a challenge was set for a masculine valentines card. I don't own ANY heart sets, so I was struggling, and then my upline set an online swap with a theme of valentines. Double ARRGGHHH!! I knew I had my sale a bration heart on its way, but it might not get here on time (it did, but that's ok!) so i needed another option. Cue frantic searching through all stamp sets (like, seriously, how did I get so MANY??? ;) and ah ha! Loads of Love. This is the very first Stampin' Up set I got, along with the accessories - before I was a demonstrator. I bought them for my daughter who had borrowed them from a stamping friend of mine. But it is not a set I use very often. I SUCK at watercolouring! (that's my other goal this year - get good at watercolouring - at least so I can use some of the cute sets like this one) but I remembered I saw this card by Teneale, and she had paper pieced the truck. Ooh, sneaky! And so CASE-able - especially those jumbo eyelets for wheels! And the layout was CASEd from this card by Jolene Johnson, (whose splitcoast gallery is full of amazing things to do with the word window punch).
I think there is still something missing from mine, but less is more, and I tend to wreck stuff when I put more on! So, this is it!! It's actually not very masculine now I'm looking at it - why is that?? there is no pink anywhere to be seen!!

Love the idea of paper piecing the truck! Although I think water colouring would be easier LOL :o)
