It was my brother's birthday this week, so I used this sketch to make his card.
It's a little hard to see the detail of the background papers I've used, because I've embossed and sponged them to death, but I do like the 'grungy' look that resulted. I've used three different pieces of Stampin' Up!'s Well Worn Designer Series Paper. I have in my stash some Crumb Cake corduroy buttons, that are long since retired from Stampin' Up!'s range, but which come in handy for masculine cards. The smaller buttons have been sponged with Not Quite Navy ink; I love that they can be customised!
(I'm not quite sure what's happened to the background, in the editing process - just ignore that!)

Make sure you check out the rest of the Design Team's samples, for this week's challenge. It's great to see the different ways we all interpret a sketch, and you're sure to be inspired by those talented women!
