Card For A Man

The latest challenge at Artful Times is men so I've made a card for a nephew who's birthday is in August, I shall probably put it somewhere safe and forget where I've put it.

The stamps that I used are Stamps Away Pilkington Transport for the tractor and the words are by Katzelkraft.
I edged a white card blank with walnut stain Distress ink then matted some gingham paper onto it. I embossed the cogs with a texture fade and coloured it with walnut stain, scattered straw, barn door and vintage photo Distress ink, then I matted it onto red card and added the ruler ribbon. The tractor was stamped in black and coloured with the same colours as the embossed cogs. I matted this onto red card. I embellished the card with some metal cogs attached with brads and added the stamped words.

I'm also going to enter my card in the Do You Stack Up challenge, their theme is Boys/Men.
