Happy Birthday Adam

Today is my nephew Adam's birthday.  As always I have problems coming up with ideas
for male themed cards, but I got inspiration from a swap that I received at one of 
our quarterly training days last year.  It was a card made by a fellow Julies Jem - Caroline 
(you can see a version of the card she did by following the link.)



Caroline had not had time to finish off her swaps, 
so I sat and played around for a while and came up with this.
I used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set to add some more splodges in Basic Gray 
and Raspberry Ripple.  I added the letter A from the Morning Post stamp set,
then wrote the rest of his name by hand.
 I then added a few more cogs and voila!
I am really pleased with the result!
(Plus I am getting more into this grunge look!)
Thanks for the inspiration Caroline - much appreciated xx
