A Male Birthday Card

I have a few birthdays coming up in January, but this one is my last for December.
I made it for my neighbour who celebrated his birthday yesterday.
I must say it certainly made a nice change to be making
something other than Christmas cards!

I used a grey pearlised card for the embossed panel, then matt and layered that onto
black, grey and silver mirror card. The black circles and dots are from the
birthday sentiments peel-off waste.
The products I have used are:-
Spellbinders - Reverse Wonky Rectangles
Embossing Folder - purchased from eBay
Challenges entered:-
