This card was made for 2 challenges. The first one is the Splitcoast Stampers Technique Lovers Challenge #639. The challenge was to make a card using the Smack Down Technique. You can find out more about it here. The 2nd challenge is this weeks Mojo Monday 498 Sketch Challenge.
Coming up with masculine design cards is sometimes tricky for me. The smack down technique provided the opportunity to use the Stampers Best Gears Background stamp to create this masculine birthday card. To keep with the theme, I used a Tim Holtz embossing folder with gears.
