Bike Strings

I struggle with making cards for men.  I can never think of a design or what to use on them.  I was asked a couple of days ago, to make a card for a friends husband.  I said yes and then when off and had a "what have I done" moment.  I've just finished it.

I started with a white pre-scored card blank.  I cut a piece of black Co ordinations textured card just slightly smaller than the front of my card and then die cut a hole in the middle.  I love my crop o dile, but it doesn't get enough use, so it was great to put it to work on this card doing all of that eyeleting.  I have used embroidery thread to lace between the eyelets and then added the slightly distressed bike digi and sentiments.  Everything, including the frame is raised from the surface of the card using the deepest foam pads that I had in my stash.  I hope she likes it.

Sorry the picture is so dark, but it is nearly 11 pm here :o)

I am entering my card for the following challenges:
Stamp something - Use a digi stamp
Paper Take Weekly - Anything goes
Craft your passion - Anything goes
