{S.S.} #212: When I Grow Up....

Good morning folks...
I am double posting today!!!  Shame on me, but I promise you will not mind!!  :) 
I am sharing my card that I created for this weeks challenge at Sentimental Sundays. 
This weeks theme is: 
When I GROW up....
Yes, this is very cool fire truck!!  :)  I made this card for my very good friend's, who's fiance just graduated from the Fire Academy!!  We are all very excited and proud of him.  So I thought it would be fun to create this for him!! 
I cut out the left window..Can you see the colored image peeking through the vellum?
The only way to capture this shot, was to lay the card flat so that you could see the image.

Here is the cute image inside the card.  Isn't he adorable!?!?!?
We are being sponsored this week by Polkadoodles Digi and his name is Fireman Jim
I colored this guy with my Copic markers and did some fussy cutting.  The sentiment is from Unity Stamps, can't think of the kit right off the top of my head. 

So I hope you will come by and join us this week. 
I would like to enter this card in the following:
