CD Sunday - Mainly Men

The challenge at the CD Sunday blog this week is Mainly Men, so I was able to make my Son's birthday card for this challenge. Apart from cars (which I covered in last Sunday's challenge), he loves motorbikes. I've used Debbi Moore's Cards For Men CD this week, and the image of the motorbike comes from the decoupage section. The backing paper that I used has a map of the US and route 66 on, while hubby and I were there recently we travelled along part of the route while travelling towards Chicago. I ran a dark brown promarker around the edge of the page rather than use a mat. The badge of route 66 is on the backing paper so I took a snapshot and printed another so that I could decoupage it on top of the backing paper. I also took a snapshot of the sentiment plate, and took this into MCS where I re sized it and copied it, then rotated it so they could face each other, then added the text. I just added some card candi to one corner to finish.

Thank you for taking the time to look. Your kind comments are always appreciated.
