Cheers Gears

A simple card with a blue textured base card and distressed looking rusty-wine papers looks so stylish.  Add in metal gears, twine with a fine gold thread, a metallic copper sentiment and bingo! it becomes masculine.  Most men like something a little geometric, even rectangles and circles.
This could be for a birthday or a congrats type card.

Sentiment die: Poppy Stamps
Others bits all from stash.

I used a mojo sketch:
