Birthday Bruce

Our friend Bruce is a tinkerer.  He also has lots of old stuff - until just recently he had NINE sheds full of old stuff that "will come in useful one day" or that he was going to fix.

So I made him this card with vintage advertising paper (see the ad for artificial legs) and the spanner for tinkering.  Yes Bruce, I know you are slimmer than that!  But otherwise the image is pretty close.
 I added a little surprise pop up sentiment inside the card.

Image: Dr Digi
Coloured with Copics
Banner die:
Sentiment stamp: fundamentals
Printed pattern Kraft Paper
Also Twine, Glossy Accents (specs), gold pen

It's awesome with the Black Sabbath t-shirt and the Harley belt buckle.

Now, the sheds..............eek. This could be one of my brothers. I'm a good cleaner outerer. That's kinda a word.

Great card.[Bunny]``
