Penny Farthing Male Birthday card

Hi Crafty Friends,

Here's something a little different from me. I have been watching YouTube videos of Jennifer Maguire and she has the most amazing ideas! This card was inspired by one of her posts.

I taped off the white cardstock the width of my tape on each side so I would have a perfect square frame (without having to measure anything!) then I used my new Distress Oxide Ink in Fossilized Amber all over the centre of the white paper. I added white Perfect Pearls after inking to give it a gorgeous gold type shimmer then embossed the card panel with my new Wave embossing folder from WRMK. I heat embossed the bicycle with bronze embossing powder and also scribbled some embossing ink then bronze powder to make the ground. I used my new Lawn Fawn sentiment stamps and dies for the sentiment so it would match. I hope my hubby doesn't read this post to see all my new goodies I just bought at a recent craft show and online shopping hehe!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
