Dump Truck Birthday Card

Hi all! My nephew turned two this month. He loves trucks so I decided to make him a dump truck birthday card. I recently purchased the Movers & Shakers: Spinners Die Collection from Papertrey Ink. I really like this die set, works great. The only thing I did different was to use penny's instead of the circle die the set came with. Penny's just seemed to work better for this project.
