Birthday Wishes for the men

One from the archives today as I am busy with other things and haven't been able to photograph anything new.
This was an attempt at a masculine card using butterscotch e.p with Giga Guildelines. I like the color of butterscotch e.p better than gold or copper...it's the perfect mix between the two! A small piece of PP from SU found it's way in there amongst the PTI product too! *gasp*
After it was done I tossed on those rustic wood buttons and then didn't like it. Unfourtuantely, glue dots are unforgiving, so they had to stay.*pout*

Thanks for stopping by today. TGIF!
Hope you have a great weekend!

Dana, this card is great. And actually, my eyes went to the buttons first. I love them as an addition. I'd like to know where you bought the butterscotch embossing powder, however? What brand is it? Available online? Thanks! :)

Dana, this is a very striking card. It is lovely... not sure why you aren't happy with it. I think it is stunning and elegant. I'm trying to visualize it without the buttons and I think their addition was a great choice.

Great card Dana. I've never seen Butterscotch EP. I'll have to keep an eye out for it. Looks awesome.
