Housewarming card for my nephew....

This card is for my nephew, who just bought his first house, at the age of 20! What a feat!!! He is a welder and finished school and saved up enough for a down payment! Gosh I remember when he was little - puking grape pop all over my bathroom!!! LOL

The image is a Shy Bear from Squigglefly and the sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp. I coloured it all with Copics and added some crystal lacquer to the mirror, tail light, the birds eyes, the lamp and the light on top of the truck. The paper is Denim cardstock from Michael's - I think it is called the Paper Factory, and the DP is SU!

Have a great week!
