Fast and Furious at 30

Hi there,

I was commissioned to make this card a little while ago. I got the image from KennyK just before they closed their on-line shop, and I think she makes a wonderful male birthday card!

I coloured her with Promarkers (no surprise there), but I don't quite think I got the shading right on the boots! The bike was lsightly confusing to colour as there were lots of bits that just seemed to be floating, however I think I figured it out in the end - it looks like a motorbike anyway lol.

I kept the layout pretty simple - rounding the corners of the image, adding a black peel-off, stamping the age and heat embossing with black embossing powder, and writing the recipients name. I used a black base card and stamped some cogs from Crafter's Companion along the edges, and heat embossed in bronze before layering the image panel on top.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Card Making and Papercraft - Magic Metallic
scrapbook stamp society -Anything Goes
inkspirational #147 Trend (Cogs are very trendy for male cards - and the girl looks very trendy too)
addicted-to-stamps #156 Autumn (I have used autumnal colours)
catch the bug - Anything Goes

I got the last of my potatoes out of their pot:

And also took a photo of my very naughty bunny, who insists on digging my garden for me!!

Thanks for looking and please check back again soon,
