Birthday Card for my Husband

 
It was my husband's birthday yesterday.  I used a Flippin' stamp for his card and coloured it in with Promarkers and distressed the edges.  I kept the colours to various shades of brown.  The backing papers are from K&Co and I thought that they were quite manly.  I used my Tim Holtz embossing folders and some new X-cut circle dies to add some shape and texture to the card.  I used my Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die and used the two small die shapes and coloured one with Tim Holtz Mustard Seed distress ink pad and the other with Brushed Corduroy.  The card is finished off with some floral cigarette cards, raffia, brads and sentiment off the computer.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
