Cupcake challenge 39

The theme for the Cupcake challenge this week set by Denise is 'a card for a man or boy' and as she says these cards are "tricky".

I fished out a stamp I've not used in ages Creative Stamping LL227G, stamped it onto acetate with black stayzon, ran it through the Xyron and put a multi coloured leafing foil on the back. Unfortunately this made it really difficult to photograph, but assure you the image is clear in the flesh. I stamped the image out again with versafine black onto Diane's Daughters papers which I also used as the background, embossed it with detail clear and cut circles with nesties using the Cuttlebug. Added a greeting using a Skinny Stamp from Stamps by Judith (Stamp Addicts) and a metal corner.
