Get Shirty!

Good evening crafters, hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend. The weekend starts here today so yipee! As my cards tend to be more for the ladies i decided it was time to create a card for the boys today. I must admit that i do find it much harder making masculine cards but i did it, here it is.

I am going to enter it into the following challenges:

2 Sisters Challenge Blog Challenge 68 (Punches and/or dies)  http://2sisterschallengeblog.blogspot.com/

DYSU Challenge Blog Challenge #49 (Something Old) http://doyoustackup.blogspot.com/2011/12/dysu-challenge-49-something-old.html

Crafty Creations Challenge #147 (A Card with a Sentiment) http://craftycreationschallenges.blogspot.com/

Materials used:
k i memories 'Friends' patterned cardstock paper pack for the shirt and punched circles
Cream and Brown cardstock
Brown buttons from stash
The shirt i made by folding a 4'' x 7'' piece of cardstock
Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Walnut stain) to distress the edge of the card, the punched circles and the shirt to give the old worn look!
E K Success corner rounder punch
1 1/2 '' circle punch
Stampin Up! Happy Birthday stamp which has a flower in the centre so i disguised this with a coordinating button.
