Trucks of Love!

I am just "truckin'" along trying to stay on top of the many cool challenges out there. It is my Friday today. I am headed to a Delta Phi Scrappa initiation event this weekend. A fellow CM friend asked me to go with her to help out. They are expecting over 100 scrappers for the weekend! Was digging in my closet last night for everything I have that is pink and black. 

We are doing a make and take session on Friday night. Come back to see what project we have in store for them all. It will have plenty of pink and bling on it. I have lots to cut with my Cricut tonight at the hotel.

Now for my post today. Thanks to a couple challenges out there this week, I was encouraged to use 2 more cartridges that I have not used yet or haven't used in a long time. I used the Nifty Fifties and Just Because Cards cartridges. The card is a bit more plain than normal for me, but sometimes you just have to remember that less is more.
Hope you all are trying some new or old carts you haven't used in a while too. I would love to know hear what those might be. 

You'll find this card linked to these challenges- check them all out. 
 

Here's how I did it....
Basic card size using CM black , white and hot pink card stock
Silver metallic paper for truck window and bumper
Scallop mat cut at 6" from Just Becasue Cards, p. 45
Truck and all layers cut at 2.25" from Nifty Fifties, p. 61 
Hearts punched from CM punches including the new mini pocket punch set
Sentiment from Scrappy Moms Designers Choice stamp set
Black brads for wheels
Stickles, silver chalk, brown chalk and doodles with my gel pen.
Pop dots for truck
