Card For A Man

It was one of our friends birthday this week - this is the card I made for him.


I covered a square card blank with some paper from my stash.
I adhered some aluminium foil to card and embossed it with a Sizzix/Alterations folder, then I covered it with black acrylic paint and wiped off the excess.
I stitched round some brown card and then adhered my image - I used a Katzelkraft stamps.
I embellished the card with staples, chain, clock charm and a peel off sentiment.

I'm entering my card in the following challenges.
