Crafty Calendar June Challenge- Masculine

Good morning, this is a scheduled post as I'm away for a week, off to sunny (I hope!!!) Cornwall this time!  My card today is for our June Challenge at Crafty Calendar, the theme is 'masculine' and we're sponsored by Lawn Fawn
Lawn Fawn
I made this card for my husband's birthday, he loves his bike! The stamps are a Woodware set,  I stamped the bicycle with Versamark and embossed with white detail EP., sponged various shades of Distress and Distress Oxide inks over the image and die cut with a stitched rectangle die. The papers are Craftwork Cards- The Great Outdoors (bargain buy at a craft show...I wanted the bicycle paper!)I stamped the spanner image around the edge of the bottom layer of DP to make a frame. Believe it or not the sentiment is stamped with the same colour brown ink as the must have reacted to the glossy accents! 
For some great inspiration for those 'difficult' masculine cards take a look at the fabulous creations from my teamies HERE. We'd love to see what you create for the men/ boys in your lives too!
Thanks for visiting
See you in a week!

A brilliant card Chris, great image and some lovely embellishments, great way of doing the sentiments too.
So when he whispers sweet nothings in your ear, I bet you say "on your bike"?
Have a great holiday and I hope the weather is really great for you.
