Vintage Thank You

This is the Grunge Gear image from the Steampunk Stamp Set at Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.  This card measures 5 x 5 and I cut the card in the shape of a gear.  I think it would make a great card for a guy.  There are so many wonderful images to choose from in this set.  I must say it is one of my favorites!  I printed the image twice and folded it in the center so the gear image is 2 sided.  I used Color Throwdown for my color inspiration.  The center is made with Spellbinders Classic Ovals Nestabilities.  I used Stampin Up Texture Plates Kit 4 Distressed (again).  Be sure to stop in and see what Lindsay has to offer this week, she always offers a freebie on Thursdays and some awesome inspiration.   Please check out the talented LSS Design Team for more fantastic ideas using stamps from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff, here are their links.
