Now, without further adieu, here is my take on this month's sketch

     This is the first time I have tried coloring flames.  I think they came out kinda spiffy.  Unfortunately, you cannot see the sparkle in the flames that were colored with a  Sakura glitter pen to enhance them 
The background on the oval is the Cuttlebug gears folder. The oval was distressed with black and then silver over the gears with silver ink.  I really like the way the diamond plate came out behind my bike.  I used another Cuttlebug folder on silver wrapping paper glued to cardstock and then added some silver brads for rivets.  The stamp is my new Bombshell set, Piston Rebel.  I have been hankering after it for a while and finally went for it.

     This card is destined for my new soldier stationed in Afghanistan.  I have a box all ready to ship out filled with nummy treats and a second box with odds and ends that come in handy.  I'm thinking this card is masculine enough for him and not to frou-frou.
