Hambo challenge 128: Carpenter

Here is my card for the 
Hambo Hoedown challenge
using things a carpenter would use.

We got this wonderful digital stampset of
the carpenter from playing last week.
If you like this image,you can find it HERE.

For my card, I used 2 pieces of real wood
in card size and drilled two holes in it.

With a blender tool and walnut stain distress ink
I colored around the borders of the card.

I found a hammer and nails stamp in my stash
and stamped thes on the background of my card.

For decoration I used some floor plan scrap paper, 
metallic mesh, black brads
and thin wire around the card.

for the inside i also used the messh, some brads,
a piece of silver embossed paper and one of 
the sentiments that came with this set.

Here you see the finished card.
It is held together with some workmen's string.

The carpenter is colored with pensil and the sentiments
are stick with double sided tape to the background.
I found I had a hamer and nail button that I could use. 

Thanks for looking!
Have a creative day!
