Best Wishes - Challenge 108 Masculine Cards

Another masculine card - this time featuring the buffalo - using the sketch challenge from Stamping 411 blog  I also embossed the background of the Very Vanilla card stock using various shapes of punches, but the picture does not do it justice.  This technique was described here in the same blog

Stamps: In Wildness, Vintage Labels
Inks: Markers (Early Espresso, Chocolate Chip and Crumb Cake on Buffalo; Wild Wasabi and Old Olive on the grass)
Old Olive, Chocolate Chip
Papers: Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Elegant Soiree Designer Paper, Early Espresso
Accessories: Hodgepodge Hardware, 1/4" Early Espresso Grosgrain ribbon, Scallop Edge Punch, Small Oval Punch

I loved doing Challenge 108.  These cards were needed for my craft shows this summer.
