I 'MALE'd this card to my Son in Law

I am the Hostess this week for the
and I chose MASCULINE.
All too often we get carried away making 'Girly' cards
so this week it is the Male's Turn.
I have a girlfriend who is forever looking out for crafty items
for me and most of what is on this card is thanks to her.
The background stamp is from Urban Stamps - Cogs
Inked in several colours from Memento
I also got the metal cogs and inked a few of them
on the background.
I was given a bunch of different types of metal cogs
so worked perfectly for my Son in Law
as he was in the middle of restoring an old car -
hence I thought he could do with a few spare parts
The sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping -
Chalkboard Birthday.
Hope I got to you with this challenge and
you get your male card stash updated.
Please checkout what the other Design Teamies
 and our
Guest for March - Jen Mitchell

So glad you stopped by

Nothing like a few cogs and gears to up the masculine anty on a card! I'm sure your son-in-law appreciated those cool embellishments! Thanks for having me along at JUGS this month!

You are right about making feminine cards. I only do masculine when I need one. the gears are a great way to create the look and also the colors. I love the inspiration here.
