In Wildness Birthday - Stampin Queen's Sketch Challenge #25

I'm taking a break from making flowers, not that I'm tired of them, I just needed a masculine birthday card.
For this card I used the sketch  with Stampin Queen's Sketch Challenge #25 here

Here is the sketch:


I picked up one of my favourite stamp sets "In Wildness" as it is so versatile and makes such gorgeous Masculine cards.
The base is Soft Suede, layered with Very Vanilla.  It was a toss as to which designer paper to use, and the Beau Chateau won.

A strip of 1 1/4" striped Soft Suede grosgrain ribbon upon which was placed a 3/8" piece of Soft Suede taffeta ribbon, was placed down the center of the card on top of the designer paper.The small polka dots were perfect as they didn't clash with the image.

After stamping the image using Soft Suede ink on Very Vanilla card stock, it was die cut with the new Labels Framelit and matted with the larger one in Soft Suede. This unit was attached to the card front over the ribbon using dimensionals.

A 3/8" soft suede taffeta bow was attached to the top of the 1 1/4" striped Soft Suede grosgrain bow, and both attached to the bottom of the card using a glue gun.

The sentiment is from Petite Pairs and was stamped with Soft Suede ink, and then punched with the 1 3/4 by 7/8" oval punch.

At the top right hand corner 2 button units were made with bitty buttons and a small circle punched with the itty bitty punch - in soft sueded.  Some linen thread was tried in a bow and attached to the top of the buttons with a glue dot.

All  edges were sponged with Soft Suede ink.

Here's the recipe:

Stamps: In Wildness, Petite Pairs
Inks: Soft Suede
Papers: Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Beau Chateau designer paper
Accessories: 1 1/4" Soft Suede striped grosgrain ribbon, 3/8" Soft Suede taffeta ribbon, Labels Framelit, 1 3/4 by 7/8" oval punch, Round itty bitty punch, Itty bitty buttons, Linen Thread, Glue dots, dimensionals, glue gun (non SU)
