One for the Boys!

'One for the Boys' is the new challenge at Try it on Tuesday this fortnight, so that's anything for the 'boy' in your life from the very young to the not so young!
I made this card for my Son's birthday a couple of weeks ago, it's an old image, (Elusive Images) probably one of the first I ever bought and has been used before on  previous cards, but I do know he does like it, so it doesn't matter that it's used again - but differently, (my Son is an avid mountain biker and goes off road riding with a group of friends every week without fail - I try not to look at the pics of jumps they do on his FB page, the cuts/bruises I see are enough).
The background is similar to the one on the 'clocks' card from a couple of weeks ago and I used the same Spellbinders embossing folder, but the other side - to look like bicycle wheel  tread, the foil card, embossed with TH cogs, was given the same Alcohol Ink treatment and the cog had paint and embossing powder applied.  The sentiment is PaperArtsy.
My teamies have as usual, some great inspiration for you which you can see here  and as Fathers Day is fast approaching, it's a good opportunity to join in, and this fortnight we also have Dagmar joining us at Guest Designer,
I am entering this at:
  That's Crafty - Texture
  That Craft Place - Men
  Country View Challenges - Only Men Allowed
  Craft Your Passion - Fathers Day/One for the Boys
  Make My Monday - Male Themed
  Crafts 4 Eternity - For the Boys
