One More for DD's Anniversary

Here's one more card for the Dynamic Duos one year anniversary challenge.  I used combo #49 of Basic Gray and Basic Black. 
I made this for my son Zach who just recently turned 15.  My husband owns an excavating business and Zach is his right hand man when it come to digging in the dirt.  The minute this set came out in the SU catalog (which was a few years ago) I knew I had to own it!  It was a perfect match for the guys in my family and I have used it many a time for special things for all of them.  The color scheme is fairly simple, so I tried to add special accents to jazz it up.  I fussy cut the bucket and main part of the excavator and popped them up on dimsionals.  Then I added silver brads....lots and lots of them.  The bigger ones are from a set I recently purchased from the clearance rack.  A mix of gray patterned papers, a birthday banner and button, and some manly dry embossing completes this card.
Here's a list of supplies....
Stamps: I Dig You
Paper: Black, Gray, White, assorted DP
Ink: Black, Gray
Accessories: Silver brads, 3/8" silver brads, metal EF, neutral button
Thanks for taking a peek!
