80th Birthday

Hi there, this card was made today for a friend's 80th Birthday, I used tim holtz texture fade Riveted Steel, which I also used on the previous card, I shaded it with Tim's distress ink pad "Vintage Photo" and used silver card for the pipes , and cut out the gears from a mixture of white and silver card, which I shaded with the Vintage Photo, I cut a small piece of tan card for the tool box and cut the tools from white card, and coloured them with distress markers, and then shaded the edges with the vintage photo, and hope the receiver will enjoy his card, and I hope you like it too, thanks for visiting today, Jasann
