Male 60th Birthday

Good morning - at least I hope it is where you are. I can hardly see the garden gate from the living room window this morning because of the fog.

Some of you will recognise the digi image on this card. It's my drawing of my own Makita drill (I've just changed the colour). I keep a close eye on it when I'm working as I'd be lost without it!!
You can find the digi image with all my other drawings at A Passion for Stamps.
I've coloured it with Promarkers and a silver gel pen on the drill bit.
What I really love about this one is the Tonic Studios  Scalloped Arc Border punch   and how it goes so well with the Craft Creations  Silver Cogs and Gears paper. Some of you may remember how happy I was to match the two up at the beginning of April at the King's Hall in Belfast  :)
I've used a hole punch to add a little more detail to the border as well, and embossed some more silver Mirror card with my Cuttlebug  Diamond Plate embossing folder.

Thanks for looking!
