Need for Speed, For my Family

This is the card I made my son who will be celebrating his birthday later this week - hard to believe he is approaching his mid-thirties! Makes me feel old!  The cardstock and inks I used were Whisper White, Marina Mist, Early Espresso.  I always forget that we now have square envelops in our catty, so this card has been cut at 10" x 5" to accommodate them.  I've used some SU stamp sets in my personal collection too which aren't available in our current catty for the background and for the sentiment.

In keeping with my grunge look - I've torn the centre pieces, dry embossed with the Square Lattice embossing folder for texture, then matted onto a square of Early Espresso.
I used the spritzer tool with an Early Espresso maker pen to create the spatter patterns on the front and inside panel and steered clear of ribbon to give it a more rugged feel.

It's unlikely he'll log onto my blog, so I think I can safely say that this is his card which will be winging its way to him soon.
