One for the boys!

Evening.

Hope you've all had a good day!  I had a lovely trip to the local craft shop and purchased a thing or two (or more!!)

Here's a card I made a week or so ago for my Brother-in-Law - he's been watching something on TV recently about Motorcycles -so we've decided he's having a mid-life crisis!

In honour of this I managed to find a Crazy Biker image from Kenny K, not the usual type of image you find on my cards - not to mention I did the colouring wrong on the flames - but apart from that I really like it!


You can't tell from the picture but the bike frame is covered in lots of glossy accents and is super shiny.  The cogs are a card die-cut (maybe / not sure) that I found in my local craft shop - and I covered them with three layers of metallic embossing power - they looked fab when I had finished with them.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

The Stamping Boutique - Any Sort of Job - Crazy Stuntman - I'm thinking of Evil Knievel!
Do You Stack Up - Birthdays
One Stop Craft Challenge - No Floral Embellishments
Creative Craft Challenges - One for the Boys
Ladybug Crafts -Anything Goes

Anyway - thanks for looking - enjoy the rest of your weekend!
