You are freakin' awesome!

Morning all, how was your holiday weekend. 
Not so good chez us as I've been suffering with a bad cold since Thursday evening and hubster was complaining of a sore throat yesterday!.
Anyway making this card for the new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz took my mind off it for awhile!
This week our challenge is to make something for the male in your life on the theme -

Beginning with the letter Z

Tricky but I know you'll come up trumps and suprise us!
Zebras. Zoo, Zero, Zest, Zig Zag, Zombie, Zodiac and Zizz all came to mind but eventually I went with-
 Z for ZIPs.

For this card I used a #MFTstamps DieNamics set of dies called Zipper. Not sure if they still make it as when I went looking on their site I couldn't find it. 
The basic premise of the design is a leather jacket. I found some leather effect white card in my stash then inked it with Black Soot DI. I used the dies to create the zips and stamped a couple of sentiments in Versamark and heat embossed in white. The panel was then mounted on a linen base card so that the left hand side looked a bit like a white T shirt.
OK, that's it from me. 
Check out the rest of the DT for more 'Z' inspiration and why not give it a go?

I'd like to join in over at -
