Paul's next project

It's our friend Paul's birthday tomorrow.  When I was discussing making a card for Paul with my hubby I showed him some vintage digital images I'd bought of a motorbike and plane.  But - we decided seen as he's always doing cars up maybe I should find a vintage car instead.  While searching I found this image (DigitalThings Steampunk Vintage Bicycle) which made my hubby laugh and we decided it could be Paul's next project.

The image is mounted on some black card stock and distressed. Other papers used are Lili of the Valley/Raspberry Road Designs Father Knows Best and Prima Marketing Engraver.  There papers have also been distressed.

I've made a stamped caption saying "Paul's next project" using a Dovecraft Alphabet Stamp Set and distress ink.

The final embellishments are some Tim Holtz Idea-Ology mini gears and some self adhesive gems.

Hope he likes the card I made him
