masculine card

Hi all
I have made this card for a friend to give her husband for his birthday...not too mushy she said !!! I think I have left the mush to a minimum with this one.The  car stamp and sentiment stamp are new , I bought myself for they are both from  from visible image .I embossed them with brown pigment ink and wow clear powder.The cream pearlised card is by crafters companion.The papers are  also new ...the fabulous Madame payrauds new  docrafts range ...They are perfect for ladies and mens cards versatile.The gears are made using another new cheery lyn die and the fasteners in the middle of the die cuts are by TH .The twine is from my stash .The frame around the car is one of the spellbinders captivating square die set .

Monday craft club ladies....we will be making this card on Monday  ....
