Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2

I am running low on male cards, both boys and adults, decided to use this very nice sketch this week at to make an adult card using this mostly browns color combo. Although, I did make the card without a bow....male card with a bow... too girly, I think.
The Sketch
My Card
 My Scraps drawers are getting too full, I am trying really hard to use up all my odds & ends, this sketch was perfect for doing so. I started by using a Kraft cardstock card base with matching envelope from a Recollections pack at Michael's Craft Stores. The embossed goldish color paper has a slight pattern to it, I embossed with a Cuttlebug "Gears" folder. The third panel is a wood-grain pattern and the "Happy B'day" panel has a pretty gold shimmer to it. I wrote and printed the sentiment on my Explore. The metal gear is from an assortment pack by "bead landing" brand from Michael's. The chevron strip I cut out of cardstock with a Recollection "Chevron" Border Punch.
Thank you for following TurtleBug's Trail!
