Happy Birthday Peter!

I'm sending this card to my nephew for his birthday

It is also my DT card for the Creative Craft Crew's challenge #4 which is a masculine card. Our sponsor for this challenge is Simon Says Stamp. A link can be found in my side bar

Masculine cards seem to be the ones that we all stumble over. I've done quite a few now with these dies from Spellbinders. They cover all ages from the late teens upwards.

I didn't have enough "oil on water" card to cut out all the sprockets so I used a textured gold card and coloured them with ProMarkers

The background paper was a bit flat so I've added stamped images to lift it using two colours. Thought that the border of the stamp tied in with the sentiment and the sprockets.

I distressed the edges of the card with DI pad from Tim Holtz

Materials used

LOTV birthday stamp
Time to celebrate stamp freebie from Craft Stamper magazine
