For the Guys

I made top 5 for - A recipe for the boys Challenge
updated on 19 June

Hi everyone, here's a card for Dads..
Have used white cardstock as the base with green,blue brown and a little pink..just a bit.
But I feel the card looks masculine even with a bit of pink.
I decided to use this Friskers punch for weaving ribbons,I punched 3 sides of the card,and added a variety of ribbons.Matted the image with DCWV DP ,added 3 flowers and buttons.
Cut out the LOTV stamp text and added it over a brown ribbon and a scallop die cut.
And added 3 blue gems .

Would like to send this card for the following Lovely Challenges

Fro the inside of the card I just add a Quickutz die cut DAD alphabets ( embossed the words and rub on some old paper distress ink)Add a flower too.
For the other side I layered a DP and a green cardstock and on HA text and 3 gems.
