Card with Some Heavy Metal!

There were several elements that I wanted to use in this card:   Metal, Recycled item, Gina K stamp, Basic Grey paper, Ribbon, Happy Birthday sentiment, and something for a man. I think that I have included them all.
I used GKD stamp from " Life is Good" by Theresa Momber for a manly card, Basic Grey Oliver paper, tabs from soda cans for the metal and recycled item, and red ribbon. I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on GKD Ivory CS and colored with Copics G21,28,Bv 25, 72, E49, C1 trying to pick up colors in the striped paper and cut with a Nesties die. Sponged the sky with Memento Summer Sky ink. Stamped a sentiment from Mark's Finest Papers "African Veldt" set using black ink.Used GKD Smokey Slate as the card base and a mat of stripe DP from Basic Grey Oliver.  I threaded the soda can tabs on red ribbon and attached with scor-tape.

What a fantastic guy card. Your embellishment with the pop tops is brilliant - super creative! I never would have thought to use them like that. What a great idea! I don't know who the guy is that you made this for, but I hope he appreciates the creativity of it! Thanks for sharing. So happy you came to play with us this week at Our Creative Corner.
