A Card for Hubby's Birthday

Good Evening All, Im sorry this is late but its been a hectic day for sure, its not only my hubbys birthday today but we also made the journey upto the NEC and we had a rare old time, me spending and hubby carrying the goodies around for me. I met Jacqui from Cat's Whiskers and guess what I actually got the autograph of Sue Wilson the lady who demostrates on Create and Craft for Spellbinders and Elusive Images, shes such a lovely lady and I took the oportunity to get her autrograph for one of my dearest friends whos a great fan of hers.
Anyway this card Im posting today was made for my husband and Ive used the Bugaboo Digi Images and the same with the sentiments, I printed him onto white card and coloured it with my copic pens, then cut him out with my rotatrim then layered him up on some cream pearlescent card, and the same with the sentiment.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with two papers from Donna's "For the Men" Bearlymine Digi Papers the first has gear wheels all over, and the second is a diamond pattern and Ive used a train border punch along the edge. The mounted image was positioned to the left hand side, and the sentiment on the right, to finish of Ive used some train buttons down the right side.
