Ok - I really needed to get out of the funk that the last card left me in, so I did an about-face and created this:
I love the way it turned out - I got to try some new things with this card.  The faux stitching helps the layers look more finished, the glossy accents on the wheel make it look like polished wood, and the patterned paper is from Webster's Pages - I love their papers, but have never had the guts to cut into one till tonight - glad I did!

I'll be entering this card into the following challenges:
Cardz TV Challenge - "It's a Guy Thing"
Die Cuttin' Divas - "Buttons, Bows &/or Bling"
Birthday Sundaes - Challenge #40 - "Birthday Card w/ Sentiment on the Outside"

Thanks for looking - Have a GREAT weekend!
