Always Playing with Paper Challenge

Last night while I was messing around on the internet I stumbled upon a new challenge blog - Always Playing with Paper.  I was tickled to see what their current challenge photo was...a Farmall tractor with a masculine theme.  The guys have several so I didn't see how I could possibly pass it up!
Here is what I created for the challenge....

This is a stamp from an Unity set called Farm Fresh.  I couldn't resist it when I bought it and I knew it would be perfect for this challenge!  I did a bit of stamped paper piecing and stamped the design directly on the card, on a bit of yellow pattern paper (for the sun) and white pattern paper (for the tractor).  The white background was created with a piece of scrap paper, a sponge dauber and Memento Dandelion ink.  I just marked a center point and rotated the paper around inking off the edge as I went.  Finally, each element was then layered onto the card with a bit of green pattern paper for the ground.  Fun challenge!  I'm going to add something clever to the inside for my son's b-day.
