   A friend of my husband has help us out on many occasions when we have been in need of help with DIY, so this is a birthday card for him.
   I stamped the image 'lick of paint' from Lili of the Valley onto white card and coloured it using Promarkers. Having sanded the edges I coloured them using distress inks and then ran an ink pad along the edges before attaching the design to a blank card. The words were cut from mirri card using Tattered Lace dies.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Without Words - and relax: hobbies and leisure
   Creative Inspirations - it's a boy thing
   Crafty Catz - anything goes
