Masculine Birthday Card

This "joy fold" card is for my father-in-law who has a birthday in April.  He's restoring a truck plus he's headed to a car show the week after his birthday, so I thought this might be appropriate.

You can find directions on how to make a joy fold card here.  My dimensions will be different on some pieces.

Here's what I used (Note: I embossed the truck with black embossing powder to help keep my watercoloring in the lines.):
