Made Especially For You...Stitch It!!!

*To see the Graphic 45 Design Team 2012 Audition HERE

Welcome back for another weekly challenge with Made Especially For You. This week the challenge is to create a card using some form of stitching...this can be faux stitching or the real thing. 

Here's my take on this weeks challenge....
I chose to create a birthday card with a masculine feel to it this time around. I have 4 brother-in-laws & one brother so it's nice to have "man" cards handy : )

I used a tag with some faux stitching...added it to Kraft tag that I tea stained & inked with some Walnut Stain Distress Ink and then added my stamped sentiment & added some trim to top it off. 
The butterfly image was stamped using the same Walnut Stain DI...yes guys like butterflies too : )
Wrapped some soft checked tan ribbon around the bottom and voila!!

And one last look...

Our sponsor for this weeks challenge is The Cutting Cafe
The winner of this weeks challenge will receive 3 images of their choice...pretty cool prize huh?
