Darkroom Door - The Road to a Friend's House

Hello friends, I have a masculine card to share with you today - I never seem to create enough of them so I am doing what I can to rectify that, using the Darkroom Door Vintage Automobiles stamp set - I love these old trucks and the fabulous sentiments that come with it.  I do have to add that there is no reason this card cannot be given to a emale as well! ;)

I have stamped the truck image using Imagine Memento Ink n Teal Zeal onto white card stock.  This strip of card stock has been sponged using Imagine Radiant Neon Inks and a Sponge Dauber,  The Texture Stamp - Measuring Tape has been lightly stamped onto the lower left corner using Memento ink in Rhubarb Stalk.  The purple spots have been created using a homemade stencil and Radiant Neon in Electric Purple and the sentiment stamped using Tuxedo Black ink.

The stamped and inked strip has been added to an embossed layer using Spellbinders Em-bossing Fold'ers Grid 4.25 x 5.5 in Single Sided and popped up onto a pre-cut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.  A strip of recycled corrugated cardboard has been adhered along the image strip and sponged using brown ink,
