Look what I spotted

Here is a card that I was asked to make for a friend to give to her husband. I started by creating an octagon card base on a scoring board and then used different papers and card to make the smaller layers to mat the main image on. The main image came from Joanna Sheen's Nostalgia Collection CD. The spotty backing paper accompanies this image on the CD. I finished by cutting out a couple of old railway tickets from a backing paper by Robert Addams on his Vintage Transport CD.

I'm entering the following challenges with this one:

Joanna Sheen - Going Dotty
Allsorts - Layers
Cutie Pie - No flowers
Tuesday Alchemy - Anything Goes
Crafty Sentiments - Male Card

Thank you for looking.
