Unity "Be Inspired" - Party Ice Cream Truck

Here's my first entry into this month's Be Inspired challenge over at Unity Stamp Co.

I had a lot of fun making the card. I love a good sketch because it really helps to get the creative juices flowing.
Here's my card using Simple Party (Itty Bitty) and More than Ice Cream (the truck).

I used quite a bit of paper piecing on the truck: the body, the door and the canopy (I flipped the edge up for dimension). When I cut the truck out I had to lose the notes that are part of the stamp but I loved that idea, so I hand-drew some notes in afterwards.

The "PARTY" sentiment was coloured using two shades and covered in Glossy Accents.

The striped strip is Washi Tape.

Here's the SKETCH:
