A Birthday Card

I'd like to share with you the birthday card that I made for my torturer [personal trainer]. I always make him a handmade card but last year I didn't have time to make one so I gave him a bought one and did he moan about it and make me suffer, so this year I thought I'd better make him one.

I swiped wild honey, faded jeans and vintage photo Distress Stain across a white card blank and then splatted the same colours onto a piece of white card, I matted this and the image onto black card. For the image I used a stamp from Flonz Craft. I embellished it with some spotty ribbon and a peel off sentiment.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges.
Tanda Teaser 202 All things manly.
Paper Pretties Masculine.
