Happy Birthday - male card



My Brother's birthday is next month so when I saw a couple challenges this morning - it help me to complete this card

I used the Diamond cut Cuttlebug folder and sanded the shiny black card stock to show the white core.
The Happy Birthday I stamped in black and then in brown StazOn ink. Use large eyelets from American Crafts to keep with the manly theme. Added a wide course ribbed ribbon and added inking here and there to try and make it look "messy" "manly (?)

Challenges:
Ribbon was requested at Doodle Palace
My Favorite technique - sanding and inking edges of card stock - at Frosted Designs
I used the layout from Die Cuts R Us Design TeamChallenge #28
All Sorts - we had to create a man card
There you go!
