New Challenge at Love To Scrap Sponsored by Stitchy Bear Outlets and Fred She Said Designs

Good morning Crafters - hope you are all well.  What a stormy weekend.  Did you get the thunder and lightning.  We did and it felt pretty close too.

Today it is time for another fantastic challenge over at Love to Scrap Challenge blog.  The theme is Scheming Crafters which means pick a colour scheme for your card and please state your chosen theme on your blog (just so we know).  You will see from my card that I have gone for a Cool Colour Scheme using blue and grey.

Here it is...

I chose to use Old Truck from Fred she Said Designs and I really enjoyed putting together this masculine card.  First I was going to go with earthy colours for this digi and do the truck brown, but somehow I ended up going with grey.  I think it works though.  The papers are Echo Park 12 x 12 and you can see some glossy accents on the headlights.  The sentiment is computer generated and everything else is just from my stash.
