Oh No Need A Guy Card

It's my cousins birthday this week and I always struggle with man cards so obviously I leave it to the last minute 'cos a bit of pressure always helps right - what it makes it worse?? Ooops!
Sooo, as I can't put it off any longer, I stamped my Stampsmith cyclist onto a piece of stampboard in blue and green, the put some gilding flakes as a border and carried on with the blue and green round the edge.
The background has been brayered then overstamped with the SU Scratches stamp.
Because the stampboard is so weighty I've cut the background card again and eyeleted it all together. A bit of manly twine to give it a butch feel and all done.
This is for the Stampsmith challenge, which is Spring this time.
Thanks very much for looking x
