King of the Road and an Easter card

This should be good for one of our RVing friends.
(Sigh) This is the final sketch here:
Thank you for the many times you have provided inspiration.  All the best to all associated with ICSketches.
I used the colors selected here: 
 A masculine card is for:
Inspired by the song "king of the Road"
 All stamps are from a clear set whose label has vanished - could it be Inkadinkado?
I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black.
Embellishments:  MS punch, Nesties ovals, masculine brads, and a couple of CB border embossing folders.

  I am just starting Easter cards.  It is a good thing there is a little time left.

The sketch is here:
I used green:
And green with a colored image:

Both stamps were purchased at a LSS, and have no manufacturer label.  I could not find a separate sentiment, so this is trimmed from a larger stamp - hence a few speckles with the sentiment, but I thought it looks ok.
One of my new favorite techniques is to use this Martha Stewart punch (a punch around the page) on both sides of a strip of cs, to create a lacy strip..
The image is colored with shiny gel pens.  BG is a Cuttlebug Stylized Flowers embossing folder; flowers are Primas with a rhinestone center.
