A Gem of a Challenge DT Card - Milestone Birthdays

It's challenge time once again at A Gem of a Challenge, this time it's my turn to pick the theme, and, as I turned 40 this week, I decided on "Milestone Birthdays".  I made a 40th birthday card for my DT creation, using this fun Steampunk Owl digi from the Pink Gem shop, coloured with Promarkers.  The shading on the image hasn't photographed very well, it looks better in reality.....honest gov!
 I used Kanban Mechanica papers for this card, all edged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink, along with computer generated sentiments, cogs cut with Spellbinders dies, and some nail heads.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Brown Sugar - #111 - Celebrations
QKR Stampede - #104 - Things With Wings
Aud Sentiments - #115 - For the Men in Our Lives
Crafting For All Seasons - #85 - Wheels and/or Cogs

Creative Corner - Male
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 - #27 - Sketch
