The Color Challenge on Splitcoast this week called for Taken With Teal, Cool Caribbean and Marigold Morning. There was also a special request with the challenge–make and send your card to Shane, a little boy with leukemia whose only wish is to receive 350,000 birthday cards by his birthday on May 30th. I thought the pick-up truck from Loads of Love with the little guy stamped in the front seat would be an appropriate card for this special little boy. The Houndstooth background was stamped in VersaMark ink and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. The little tab on the side was made with the Key Tag Punch and actually pulls out. I made a track on the backside of the truck panel with several Stampin’ Dimensionals so that the tab would pull out straight. I also secured some Linen Thread to the left side of the tab and then to the backside of the truck panel so that the tab wouldn’t pull out all the way, but stops where you see it depicted in the photo (please click on the photo to see the finer details). I truly hope that Shane gets his wish!
