Funky Fossil "Circuit Board" Birthday Card - Male Birthday Card

I always struggle to create cards for men, which got me to thinking, I should try to create a few more.  With this thought in mind I created this card. 

I used "Blueprint Sketch" Distress Oxide Ink through the Funky Fossil Circuit Board Stencil to create the background.

I used an Inkylicious Light Bulb stamp, stamped in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" ink.  I coloured the screw bit of the bulb with a water colour pencil, then cut out the shape of the whole bulb and adhered it over the background.

I used Papertrey Ink stamps for the sentiment, from their "Big Birthday Wishes" set, stamped in Versafine Clair "Blue Belle" ink.

I decided the white of the glass bulb was too stark, so added a light covering of "Squeezed Lemonade" Distress Oxide Ink with a blender to give a softer look to that area of the card.
