Happy Birthday Spinner

Have you seen the color combo at colourQ this week??

I love the combo (and the owl comforter inspiration is super cute as well!).  I just so happen to need a masculine birthday card and thought these colors were great.  As I got started, I decided to turn it into a tag instead of a full card, so here it is:

I took the birthday spinner from SU!'s Take a Spin set and colored it with markers then stamped it.  I didn't have a gray marker so I had used black, but I didn't like the dark color mixed in with the grean and teal, so I went over it all with a VersaMarker and embossed it with some silver powder... much better!  The spinner itself was a bronze color so while I had the silver embossing powder out, I coated the hardware so it matched the gameboard.  The base, that the twine is wrapped around, is a coaster that I covered with some black fabric tape.  I wanted it to have that game board feel. :)

On the back, I kept it simple.  I used another SU! stamp and the same markers as I had on the front.  Pretty straightforward.  

Here's a  closer pic of the front:
