Day 11 CPS - Happy Birthday from both of us

And here is my 2nd card for today and it is a male birthday card for the challenge over at Kaboodle Doodles and also following the Day 11 sketch from Card Positioning Systems, sketch #170 ...

I sort of went off the sketch a bit but once you see the 2nd photo you will see that it is quite close to the sketch.   male cards can be quite difficult and I always resort to farm animals and have some sort of interaction / mechanical element to it ... so for this card I really had to think outside the 'farmyard' so to speak ...
 
this is my first go with the MFT woodgrain fence die and I decided that I would create a gate in it ...
 
so the mechanical / interaction element is you open the gate to reveal the 2nd part to the title.
I am really happy with the way this male card turned out ... I hope Neils 26 year old cousin likes it :)
materials - AC white cardstock, Bazzill honeycomb cardstock; Kaisercraft 'nans' favourite' papers, JS 'apple cheddar soup' and 'watermelon gazpacho' papers; FernGully cow and bull stamps, AnnaBelle Stamps 'party animals 1' (title) stamps; MFT woodgrain fence, flat bottom clouds and wonky scallop border (used as a tree/bush line!) dies; Provocraft dot embossing folder; Marvy pens - blender 0, pale orange 16, dark brown 18, leaf green 48, sky blue 75 and Tombow grey N75; Twinery twine.
Thanks for looking.
