Wheels The Male Room

My DT card today is for
 
I really didn't know what to do with this quite easy theme. SO, I did what I usually do and went through my files for vehicles, I was pleased to see this wonderful tractor come up amongst all the others, I think it has wonderful atmosphere.

Image was sent it to me years ago, by someone,
 I have no further information on it.
DP's Summertime Designs no longer available
Sentiment by Paulette at Create with TLC
wheel die was a freebie from a magazine.

I enlarged the image and blurred it in PS for the background,
printed out the DP's, layered them and added
the image, sentiment and the wheels which
 I added white pen for highlights.

Absolutely love this card! It has a super vintage feel - I kinda like old tractors!! I really like the colours you've used and that blurred out image works perfectly. Great work. Deborah xx

PS I seem to remember that there's a vintage car/tractor show that takes place near Nantwich in the spring! I'm not sure!

Had to smile at your 'easy' comment on the wheels challenge. You sure did come up a winner with this vintage tractor image. Love that sentiment! How true it is too! The textured look of the paper designs looks great with the sepia tones of the old tractor, and adding in those gears, perfect for a masculine card. YAY for you! TFS
