Any old iron @ CD Sunday challenge

It has taken me some time to get around to a card for the theme at CD Sunday challenge which is "any old iron". I decided to take a look at the Thomas Kinkade cdrom which I have only used once. I'm doing a jigsaw of one of his paintings (doing and have been for nearly a year!). I hadn't realised that there were some cities on the cdrom.

I've chosen San Francisco Golden Gate bridge - I know it's not iron but I felt it was going with the general theme! I've added the City name using a Penny Black Stamp and drew in the three birds. I printed from the same cd rom a sky background and used the CE Australian background die to cut a frame into it. I've edged with a black marker pen, the sentiment is from the now closed Waltzingmouse stamps and finally part of a Memory Box tree die.

This will be a nice card for the OH and bring back memories of our trip there.

I'm also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge for "birthday" to celebrate their 8th birthday.

What a beautiful image. I have seen the bridge but this picture makes it look more beautiful than it is in real life. All I can remember is that it looked very rusty.
Great card.
