A MOTORCYCLE CARD FOR A GUY'S 21ST BIRTHDAY

One of my clients ordered a card - a motorcycle card for a guy's 21st and she provided an image to be used.  

Here is the card:


I printed the image onto textured CSas is - with no colouring and matted it onto black CS.  Don't you think that this is just awesome printed onto the fabulous texture?


For the sentiment I used a ticket template, added a sentiment (sorry not sure of the store it was a freebie from) and added on another two tickets and some tearing, so that it looks like it was torn from a roll. The gold numbers "21" are stick-ons onto a circle punched with a MS punch.


There is another punched circle secured with a gold brad, and 5 stick-on black gems to finish off the card.  
I used the very masculine looking DP for the background.

I hope she likes it well enough to give to the birthday boy.  I had to pop it into her postbox this afternoon and haven't heard from her yet.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:


CRAFTY BOOTS, 'ONE' ONE image, twenty-ONE, ONE DP, ONE brad, ONE colour mat, the number ONE in the ticket number
