Stampin' Up! Motorcycle makes Masculine Birthday cards super quick!

Hi! Back after the issues with Blogger, to be honest, I just haven't been crafting much, I've been a bit snowed under with uni work, major assignment is due next week, so I've been focusing on getting that done. I created this card today while Mark was vacuuming (yeah, he's house trained well)
 Here is a close up of the amount of detail is in this stamp!
Ok, so, I recently got an order from Stampin' Up! which included this single (á la carte) stamp, which is perfect for the men in your life, and at only AUD$13.95, you really can't go wrong. For this card, I have stamped the motorbike in Versamark, and then embossed it in black. Once I had heat set the image, I got out my Real Red Stampin' Write Marker and coloured a few selected panels, I then hi-lighted the curves with a white uni ball pen. I have stamped a fairly plain and simple Celebrate sentiment, which is from Basic Phrases, in Real Red and Versamark, and clear embossed it. I have embossed some straight lines above and below the images using my bone folder and Scor-Pal. 
Anyway, I am entering this into a couple of challenges, the first is of course Less is More, which is a one layer card including embossing. The second is the sketch, fall to layout 140 from Clean & Simple, which I have edited slightly, as I'm not a huge fan of elongated cards... anywho, here is their sketch -
I hope to be updating a little more frequently after Wednesday, so, keep an eye out.... 
Happy Stamping!

This card is perfect, I wouldn't have thought that a stamp with that much detail would heat emboss very well, just goes to show the quality of SU! stamps!!
Fab card!
