Masculine Birthday

How convenient for me that Blogger's Challenge has the birthday theme, since I just sent this card out for another masculine birthday challenge. My card uses the Faux Barnwood Technique from the February 2011 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter as a background. The stamps are new-to-me from Stampin' Up!.  I thought the little Tim Holtz Gears were perfect with the stamped image. 

Hope you have a great day!

I adore everything about this card -- it all works so perfectly together and I think it could be male or female.
