Harvest Blessing Birthday - Create with Connie & Mary#233

I needed a masculine birthday card for a friend of mine.  Plus I wanted to try a new technique using Versa Mark ink and chalks.
I used the sketch challenge with CCM here

2012 Create Thursday-013 
 
I turned the sketch on its side to make this card
 
 Stamps:  Harvest Blessings, Bring on the Cake, Button, Button
Inks: Versa Mark, Stampin' Pastels, Early Espresso
Papers: Old Olive, Old Olive polka dot DSP, Whisper White
Accessories: Argyle folder, silver soda pop tops (flattened using the Big Shot), green/white Baker's twine, 1/2" circle punch, stamp-a-ma-jig

Technique: 
  1. Stamp image with Versa Mark
  2. Color image with select colors of Stampin' Pastel using a Q-tip
  3. Using the stamp-a-ma-jig match up the images and stamp over the colored image with Early Espresso
