Masculine Happy Birthday

Morning all.
It's time for a brand new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz. This time our challenge for you is:-


Hopefully that phrase will spark you into action and prove to yourself that making cards for men is not so difficult after all. Here is my inspiration for you.

I went with a faux metal background after seeing a video by Jennifer Mcguire, where does that fabulous lady come up with all her ideas? 
She explains the technique much better here but in essence I masked off a rectangle with painters tape then inked the space with Hickory Smoke DI and then added Perfect Pearls, buffing away the excess when dry. After carefully removing the tape, I embossed the panel with a DoCrafts cog EF and trimmed it down as the EF doesn't cover the whole panel. I added a die cut sentiment and some die cut cogs to finish. The panel was then mounted on pads on a mid grey base card.
For more metal inspiration check out the rest of the team here.
