Born to be Wild

It's time for Cards for Men Challenge #2 - Transport. You will have until February 3rd to link your creation for a chance to win 4 digi images from our sponsor Meljens Designs!

 When I saw the Flaming Monster Truck digi by Meljens I knew I had to have it!  Having a two boys in the house I knew this digi will come in handy!  I colored the image with my Copics and added Glossy Accents to the window, headlight, flames and wheel nuts.  I wish I had some orange glitter for the flames!

When I cut the image out, I had to cut the flag off from the back of the truck.  I used a pin from the sewing kit to get the flag back flying high, think it worked quite well!  The sentiment is by Create with TLC.

I decided to make two cards 'cause I recently purchased the Hello Spaceboy mini paper pad by Prima Marketing and the papers were just screaming to be used. For the embellies, the cogs were made with a punch from Stampin Up, the plastic blue star and orange splotch are by Paper Crush, the round badges are by Making Memories and the rest is from my stash.

To give the truck some rock n' roll motion, I used a spring on the back - I wish you could see it in action, it's soooo cool!  Before you get started, here's a little blurb on our sponsor, Meljens.  Make sure you check them out!
