Diamond Plate Birthday Card

Needed a Birthday card for my son so I went with simple and masculine.
I love using my Cuttlebug Diamond plate folder for masculine cards but this time it was even more fun because I snagged up Hubby's Foil Tape from the garage. 
He recently had to buy this roll to make some repairs and he was worried about wasting the rest of the roll because he didn't need very much of it.... hahahahahaha he is too funny!  I will have no problem using it up for him!  I love to repurpose and reuse things when I can. 
ok so I took a large scrap of white cardstock and covered it with this foil tape with the edges roughly sticking off the edge.  I then ran it through the big shot with my Simon says stamp Bundle of Stitched shapes Die for the mat.... perfect!  I used some more cuts with that stitched die set for the flags sticking out.  The designer paper for the flags is from DCWV "Glam Rock"  I used a Fleur De Lis stamp from JustRite stamps I cut it out with my Spellbinders labels 20.  The Birthday circle stamp is from cardz tv  Going in Circles Stamp set and cut with a circle die from HOTP.  I inked it all up with Tim Holtz "old paper" distress ink.  The screw brads are from my stash.  the black stitched circles under the brads at top are from Simon says stamp Stitched dress up tags.
 
On the inside I simple created a 4X6 printable using a quote from my HOTP 1000 card quotes.  I added the splash of color to help pull it together with the front old paper inking and also added the Happy Birthday part with my computer.  I printed on a 4x6 white cardstock then ran it through my bigshot with the large stitched mat once again.  I cut a few more stitched flags to put at the top.
 
I will be entering into these fun challenges:
