Anything Goes - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
Christmas is fast approaching and I am off into town this afternoon to buy the last of the presents I need to buy before it gets too manic and busy as I'm not the most patient person when I'm on a mission lol. I can spend hours creating one card and have all the patience needed for that but me and shopping is another matter hahaha.

It's Wednesday which means -

This week I have created a masculine card featuring several fabulous Tim Holtz products including those lovely Crazy Cats stamps which I have coloured with my copics.
I have stamped my image and die cut it with Simon's Nested Circles dies using the out of the nestie technique, and then framed it with Simon's lovely Birthday Circle wafer die.
The corrugated card is recycled from a parcel and similar can be found here. I have added a variety of embellishments, Tim Holtz Idea-ology Film Strip Ribbon, an Idea-ology Metal Hardware corner, May Arts Ivory twine, Glossy Accents & a few drops of Black Nuvo Crystal Drops.

The copic colours I've used are -
C3, C1, C00 / N7, N5, N3 / R30, R20.
