Limelight Sketch #64 chipboard: male b-day card

For this Limelight Papercrafts Sketch Challenge incorporating chipboard,  I decided to make a male birthday card so I manned up today! 
I shopped my stash for anything manly and found a 3" chipboard circle, my ignored edge distressor, rugged twine, star brads, and sports paper. 

I painted the chipboard circle with brown paint and then adhered the 3" circle cut on the Cricut. The letters were cut from the "Cuttin' Up" cartridge.  I used my Crop-a-Dile to punch the holes in the chipboard for the star brads.  It's one of those tools I don't use often, but I am glad I have it!

The Sketch:

Paper: We R Memory Keepers "MVP", cardstock
Stamp: Stampin Up
Ink: Distress in Vintage Photo, Memento
Cricut: George and Cuttin Up
Other: chipboard circle from stash, twine, star brads, Tim Holtz edge distressor, Crop-a-Dile

Thanks for looking! ~Kelly
