The Shabby Tea Room #13

This week in The Shabby Tea Room is 'Just For Dad' just in time for Fathers Day.I don't do many mens cards so this was a challenge for me as I like pretty cards but I've got to make a Fathers Day card so here's mine.  

The striped paper is Basic Grey Cappella which I sewed around the edge in running stitch and as usual I distressed the edges and inked in Vintage Photo Distress Ink.I used Grungeboard Elements and Alphas which I embossed with a Tim Holtz embossing folder.I painted the Grungeboard and then swiped over the raised embossed area with Vintage Photo.The advertisment was from Graphic 45 and then I just added a few buttons and a Tim Holtz memory pin.

You did a fabulous job on this masculine card, Deb. I really like the striped paper and the grungeboard accents. And those buttons look fabulous, too. Thanks for playing along again in the Tea Room.
