Masculine card for Fab'n'Funky

Hi everyone,
I hope this finds you well.
Spring has finally arrived for us.  The lawns are starting to green up
 and I have hyacinth waiting to burst with favourite time of year.

Today starts a new challenge at 

and our lovely host for #255 is Chris who has chosen a Masculine theme.

We are sponsored by the wonderful Doodle Pantry
who generously supplied us with digital images of our choosing.

I've used a pre-coloured image from the Big Trucks collection available here.
I couldn't help buy another pre-coloured image when I was on the site
as I think they are fabulous to have for those last minute cards.

I had so much fun making this swing card.  I followed the tutorial made by
the very talented Norma of From My Craft Room available here.

View of the card when it's closed.

I would like to enter the following challenges: (listed alphabetical)
ABC Challenge - H for Happy Birthday
Party Time Tuesdays Challenge  #197 - ATG

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you get a chance to
play along with us this week.
