Antique Birthday Card

Today I am sharing a fun birthday card I made for my brother-in-law.  He manages an oil and gas distribution company and loves anything related to old gas pumps, so when I found this die cut image, I knew it was perfect for his card.  I am playing along with this week's challenge #198 over at Mojo Monday.  I loved this sketch!  Here are the details:

Size:  A2
Card Stock:  Bazzill, Coredinations, American Crafts
Patterned Papers:  My Minds Eye and Dots; DCWV Stripes and Plaids Stack
Gas Pump:  Nifty Fifties Cricut cartridge cut at 3 3/4".  I printed the word "GAS" from  my computer, punched it out with a small circle punch and put it on that way because it would have been almost impossible to get the word cut out on my Cricut.  It would have been 1/4" tall.
Star:  George Cricut cartridge cut at 1 3/4"
Bangle Chain:  EK Success border punch
Stitching: Done with a Pen
Gems:  Glitter Dots

Thanks for your comments!
