Motorcycle birthday

  Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps.  This week it is: All About the Boys!! So, show us your best masculine cards.

Here is the card I created:
The shiny, silver panel was made with some chimney tape (my father cleans and relines chimneys and he gave me a couple rolls of this tape--it is perfect for making metal embellishments!).  I adhered it to a piece of scrap card stock and ran it through my die cutting machine with an embossing folder.  It has such great texture and shine!  The patterned papers were left over scraps and the turquoise star was left from some baby shower favors I made a while ago.  I still have several more to use up, but I'm getting there.
Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure you head on over to The House blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has done with this photo.  And if you "need" any of the stamps I used, check out my 10% off your entire order coupon code over in my left sidebar.

Stamps: Repeat Impressions "Harley" and "Birthday"
