Father's Day is just around the corner

About 6-8 months ago my dad bought an old pickup.  It's turquoise.  I don't know the year or make but turquoise hasn't been popular for some time.  It's in pretty good shape.  The guy that he bought it from has taken it to car shows.  It's not restored but original condition.  They did re-upholster the seats after they got it.  I found a truck that very much looks like dad's on the Nifty Fifties cart.  Of course I to make the truck turquoise. 






As you can see in the last picture, I cuttlebugged the bottom of the card.  The DP is Basic Grey.  I also used an MS border punch.  I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:

Polka Doodles - Something for Dad
Whimsical Wednesday's - Happy Father's Day
Celebrate the Occasion #17 - Father's Day

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Hugs
Carrie
