Happy Handyman Birthday

One of my first birthday cards of the year and when I saw this Kenny K image it is so spot on I had to use it! Maybe not quite so many muscles right enough lol!

My base card is navy blue linen textured A4 card folded to make an A5 portrait card. The first layer is blue Kanban Kandi Core, embossed with a cogs mask and sanded back. The main image layer has been cut with a spellbinders label (edges inked in blue) from one of the grand sets.The layers are attached with dimension and extra bits are: metal brads, metal tools, die cuts using Tim Holtz sizzix cogs die on metallic card, a peel off greeting and finally the image has been coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers. 
All The Best, 
Vee xx  

I would like to enter this card in the following:

The Corrosive Challenge Blog where there is a theme of Rainbow Bright   they want to see favourite colours. I love using blues and if it is teamed with a nice touch of white and red it suits everything really.
