Male Birthday Card

Today's card is one I made for a friend who celebrated his birthday last week.
After embossing the base card, I cut two frames using the Nestability circle dies. 
Next I die-cut the sentiment, glued it to a circle of white card and used 3D foam
 to attach it to the card. Lastly I added some enamel dots.
The products I have used are:-
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Circles
Sentiment die - Purchased from eBay
Docrafts Xcut Embossing Folder - Tartan

Here is another one I made afterwards using the inside circles of the
 frames and a slightly darker shade of card for the sentiment.

I think I prefer the first one.
