60th Birthday Day Card

Its the 60th birthday of the boss that my husband works for next week, so I thought I'd make him a card......might score some brownie points. Quite getting into making male cards now. I kinda followed the theme of a shadow box, as the challenge at Ink on my fingers is Red and Hels has made a lovely shadow box as her project. I started off with a 5x5ins piece of card and cut it up using the car image as the focal point. The pieces were distressed with the following colours: Fired Brick,Tattered Rose,Aged Mahogany and victorian velvet and some of them were spritzed with gold perfect pearls......gotta have a smidge of bling.


 I used the following stamps for the collage: Words are from the venice collection by Dark Room Door, the car is from B Line, the quote and the stamp are from Paper Arsty (hot picks) and the rest are from Crafty Secret clear art stamps......these are my faves at the moment.....just love the minature music stamp except the clock face which is from Crafty Individuals.
