Join us in a Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge ~ My "Ol' Truck" Card

Hello All,
This is another pre-posted card. I am either still in the hospital or this is my first day home and I haven't sat down at the computer yet. As soon as I am up to it, my blogging will be back to normal!  ;)

Really Reasonable Ribbons is going to have a challenge on the 1st and the 15th of every month  where will post new challenges with themes. The only rules are to follow the theme, use ribbon and post your links to win. Each challenge will be open for 13 days. So the challenge for the 1st will be open until the 14th at 5pm CST. A winner will be chosen and that winner will win a $10 gift certificate to use as they choose at the Really Reasonable Ribbon store. We will also be picking our top 3 sweethearts. that will have a badge to proudly sport on their own blogs. This is our very first challenge. For all of the details, come to our design team blog Really Reasonable Ramblings.
For our first challenge we ask that you do a  MASCULINE CARD and use ribbon.
Great timing with Father's Day just around the corner!
If you play along with us in this challenge and upload your card to a public forum, please use the code RRRC1 in your keyword or tag box, so we can find it.

I just love the Natural Jute Ribbon and thought it would work great for a masculine card.
I picked the Green and Deep Blue crepe ruche papers from The Paper Temptress that work really well with the jute. I also used their Black Leather on the scalloped frame. Then attached it to a craft cardstock base.
 I used this adorable "Old Truck" - colored digi set from Fred She Said.

If you have not signed up for my Mega Multi Company Blog Candy....What are you waiting for? LOL!

Thanks for dropping in!
I hope you will join us in our very first challenge. :)

True :D

I had to stop by after seeing your card on the RR challenge. It is absolutely gorgeous! This truck reminds me of an old truck, and I do mean old. LOL. truck my dad use to have when I was growing up. I was the only one who would ride in it with him. Thanks for reminding me of that precious memory!
Your design, coloring, and everything else you put into this little card is just fabulous! So glad I stopped by for a visit.
