Nuts & Bolts.....

Today's CAS card.....
It is the last challenge of their 4 weeks of Birthday Fun.
I used a square instead of the circle as I felt it worked better 
with my theme of Nuts and Bolts......
The line of nuts and bolts have been stamped the full length of the card.
The square has been stamped with shades of grey ink 
using  seven individual stamps.
I have used three different company stamps for this card....
Clearly Besotted, Deep Red and De Stempelwinkel.
I don't normally mention the makes 
but I think the photos look like it is patterned paper/card.
Even my DH thought it was paper/card when I showed him.
The sentiment was stamped with my trusty Misti in two shades of grey.
I finished off with adding glossy accents in some places 
and raising the square up with foam.
Thank you for stopping by it really is appreciated.
