One for the Boys

I am delighted with my "new" Marianne car die, purchased in September.  Just right for making a boys card.  I teamed it with Basic Grey "Wander" papers and mounted it on a Tim Holtz sprocket embossed panel - a gift from my best matey.  Tim Holtz gears topped with Craftwork candy that I scored to make them look like screws add a bit of additional dimension.  I coloured some chrome on my car in silver gel pen and added black tyres cut with an SU small circle punch with another smaller hole cut from the centre. 
My desk looks like a tornado blew through and whereas I know the sentiments themselves are still sitting on an acryllic block, I can't find the packaging anywhere amongst the rubble to tell you the make!  I MUST, MUST, MUST tidy up.  The floor in my Craft Croft is flooded with "stuff"; every lid is off every box, with half the contents of those boxes making it impossible to move my chair in case I run over anything.  I made this card in the only 6 inch square space left on my desk!
I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Lol! That sounds like my craft space too...isn't it amazing how much stuff we need out to make one card! That car die is fab, I love your whole design & the little screw heads look great.

Good luck with the tidy up x

Fantastic boy's card! Now I know where to search inspiration when I need one:) I should use embossing more often; looks great! Love the gadgets you added and the screw heads!
