One, Two, Three - Go

The new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow starts today and the theme is called ONE, TWO, THREE.  We want you to make cards with one focal image, two patterned papers and three types of embellishments (e.g. a strip of lace, a few pearls and some ribbon).  You can add multiples of any of the three types you choose but we don't want you to add a 4th type of embellishment.

Provided we have at least nine entries in the challenge we will choose one random winner who will receive a little piece of word art along with a winner's badge to display. The Design Team will choose their Top Pick and that creator will receive a winner's badge and also be in the running for a monthly Guest Designer spot.

I made this card while I was in Virginia visiting with my friend Patti and decided it would be great for my husband's birthday.

I started with some Recollections green card stock for my blank and added two papers from First Edition.  Next I stamped the vintage truck from Stampin Up with Jet Black Archival Ink from Ranger and coloured it with Spectrum Noirs.  The leaves were cut from scraps of card stock on Patti's Cameo and I then I stamped them with a Gina K. script stamp.  Everything was inked with some Vintage Photo Distress Ink from Ranger.  Finally I added a button and some hemp from Patti's stash.

While I designed this card and put it together, Patti supplied everything that went into it so you might say that she made it too :)  So there you go, one truck image, two papers and three types of embellishments - leaves, button and hemp.

I am going to enter this into the following challenges:
