Seize the Birthday....Happy Dirtday!

Happy Tuesday Peeps! 
Today I am sharing a card I made using the sketch at Seize the Birthday.

This week is masculine week, so I pulled out my Stampin Up "I Dig You" stamp set. 
I think this dump truck is just the cutest thing!!1
I stamped the truck with Island Indigo and Real Red and then cut out the pieces I wanted to use. I then stamped the wheels using my black stazon pad and cut them out. I used my markers to color the presents and stamped and cut them out.
I made the "dirt" using some soft sued card stock and tearing it across one edge and then used my soft sued ink pad directly on the paper to add some color. I added the soft suede "dirt to some whisper white card stock, I then assembled the dump truck on that piece. I matted this with some Island Indigo card stock. 

The base of the card is real red and then I used a layer of old olive that I embossed with the stripes EF. I added some twine across the bottom of the main panel and then added this to the old olive embossed piece with some dimensionals. The sentiment is from the same set and stamped with black onto white and then punched out with the decorative label punch and added under the main panel. 
Thanks for stopping by today and
