The World's Your Oyster !

This is my card for someone's birthday, but I won't mention who as I'm not sure if they will see it on my blog. It's also for the following challenges :

The background card was inked with Adirondack Stonewashed ink and I stamped the image, which is a Tanda Stamp, in the same ink. The paper is Basic Grey which I cut out with a circle Nestability. I used Denim and Latte alcohol inks on the glossy card stock then stamped over the top with black Memento ink. The image is from a Rubbadubbado stamp set that I've had for years, and I still love it !

The two side strips of embossed card have had Versamark ink applied to them then clear EP. I've left this card quite simple as it's for a man and I don't think they appreciate swirls !
Well I've had a good day today as my long awaited Bigz dies that I ordered in the Sizzix sale arrived today and also I won last week's challenge over at Creative Card Crew ! Think I'll do the lottery tomorrow while I'm on a roll !
Thanks for looking
