Happy Birthday - Guy Greetings for Technostamper #350

I've been doing a lot of craft showings lately, and I'm running short of Masculine cards.  I just received  the  "Guy Greetings" stamp set this week, and the sketch with TSSC here was the perfect opportunity to make a masculine card.

The image of the old car was stamped with Black Memento ink ont Whisper White card stock, and coloured with an Aqua painter and the Always Artichoke , and Smokey  Slate ink pads.  It was then punched with the 2 1/2" circle punch, and layered with an Early Espresso circle die cut using the Circle Framelits.
The perimeter of the Whisper White circle was pierced using the circles template from the Essentials paper piercing template and a paper piercer.  The edges were then lightly sponged with Early Espresso ink, and attached to the matting using dimensionals.

The base card is Always Artichoke, layered with 2 different DSP.  The top half is from the"Irresistibly Yours Specialty DSP" (SAB).  It was sponged with Early Espresso ink and was wiped off with a paper towel to show the pattern underneath.
The bottom half is from "Adventure Bound DSP stack.
Early Espresso seam binding was adhered where the seams met.
The sentiment is from the same stamp set.  The paper was notched at both ends, and attached with dimensionals at the bottom half and tombo at the top half.
To finish the card, Crystal Effects was applied to the car, and a Bronze button with 1/8" Early Espresso ribbon wound through it, was attached to the upper right corner.
