Work buster

I made this birthday card for a special friend of mine that I can count on for projects my husband can't get to.   When those ideas come up, then we laugh and say we need to call "THE MAN" . . . he gets a kick out of it as much as we do!  I found some gear paper that I cut the strips off to add to the top and bottom of this card, to add a little pizzazz, since I had nothing with tools on it.  In the end, I think it came out alright and Dusty was tickled with it. The large circles are diecuts and the smaller ones are done with paper punches.
I would like to enter these challenges:

Art Impressions - for the fellas
Aud Sentiments - bingo (rubber stamp, patterned paper, paper punch) + sentiment
Clear It Out - AG/your choice (diecut)

Cute as a Button - for the boys

Loves Rubberstamps - AG

Pile It On - focus on coloring

  3. What a great sentiment Lillian - especially considering what you call your friend! Love the gear paper strips you found - adds to the male-ness of your card - LOL! I also like the double matting you did - nicely done and is a great feature in your design. Delighted you are sharing your project and creativity with us at Aud Sentiments!
