Mixed Media Masculine Birthday

It's been quite a while since I have posted, but this summer has been very busy.
I used the challenge at Just Us Girls to use mixed media on your card.

This is also for the Kaboodle Doodles Challenge to use any embossed work

I dug through my stash and found all of these goodies.
The background is adhesive backed foil embossed then painted with black acrylic paint and sanded.  Added some Magic Mesh and a couple of die cut gears that were painted with Tim Holtz crackle paint.  Stamped the sentiment on some paper thin cork and layered it onto a Gina K Denim die cut banner.  Added 3 eyelets and tied some twine through them.  Layered the foil background onto some black cardstock and then onto a Gina K Denim card base.

Thanks for taking a look!
