Happy Birthday Tom!

It's son in laws birthday to day, Happy Birthday Tom!!  I thought I'd make him a card with a nice sexy lady on the front this time, instead of a bear, or a monkey from past years, in fact two sexy ladies! 
This is one of Kenny K's digi images of course and as you can see I've flipped one of the images the other way.  
I've been using my embossing folders, in side and out, and cog die cuts again. I do love them!  This time I inked over all the embossing using a Furry Grey ink,
(Had to get an animal in there somewhere) 
I've used metal brads, and well as screw brads and a spanner brad and a charm guitar.
I've coloured her with  ProMarker, using mostly greys. (The card she's printed on wasn't too good (it was, coz it wasn't cheap!) it bled over the edges, which was a bit of a pain! So, after extra careful colouring near the edges, all was okay!)
The papers were a freebie from Simply Cards and PaperCraft magazine, a few months back. Prima Botanical Collection 6x6 paper stack. Probably not really a 'mans' type of paper (coz there are flowers and chirrups cherubs too) but they are all quite dark or light, with prints and other things and have 'graphicy' type patterns and once I'd embossed and inked them, you couldn't really tell what's on them!
I've also coloured a card die-cut T  (for Tom) with a black Promaker.
The sentiment was done on the computer The font is a freebie. It's called Rock, download HERE! It has  musical instruments in the gaps, well, you'll see what I mean!
New Follower (((wave))) to Any Old Craft which I found the other day when I was blog hopping, some lovely cards, so go see! And out the back and in the dark Krisha! But with no link, strike that!! You'll find Krisha  at Krisha's Keepsakes! Hope to enter this and add a few more...
