It's Your Special Day - Color Dare #356

This is my DT card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #356 combined with Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #329.  My daughter's husband, Pat, and my son, David, purchased a cabin in Heber AZ (3 hours north of their homes) as their weekend retreat and man cave; but little do they know when this renovation is complete there just may be a small crop group periodically going up on a weekend.  

This is a Birthday Card for my son-in-law.  He has a silver truck which will be filled with a number of tools they will need to start the renovation.  The accent colors "Sapphire" and "Mint" were selected because these are close to the colors they are using for the interior. 

Found these cute sequins in my stash and they were ideal for hubcaps and the embellishments.  One of the saws was used for the sentiment.     

Please visit each of these challenges to see DT members' inspiration, along with other participants that have entered these challenges and maybe you can combine these challenges too.

I like the way you mixed up the sketch by turning it on its side. Love the silver accents. Great card.

This is a fabulous card. I love the truck and saw. They actually look like they're made of stainless steel the way the light is hitting on them. Great layout. I hope the kids enjoy their getaway. Plus, any cropper that goes when no one else does................ha ha. That'll be fun. [Bunny]`
