Indigo Pond Birthday Card

Here is my entry for the ABC Challenge "I is for Indigo" this fortnight:
Materials used on this card:

Navy blue cardstock
Patterned paper from K& Co... I think...
Burlap sack paper from DCWV Photo Stack 2
Stamp: "Pond 2" from Nature's Blessings Art Stamps
"Faded Jeans" Distress Ink by Tim Holtz

Wrought Iron Cuttlebug embossing folder
Tsukineko Archival Brilliance "Moonlight White" pigment ink, rubbed over reverse of embossed piece
Martha Stewart Arches edge punch
Zoophabets brads by C.K. Gibson "Markings"
Hobby Lobby floral stem hydrangea blossoms
Spare parts brads
White 3/8-inch ribbon
Sewing machine
X-Acto blade
I thought I was creating a more masculine-looking birthday card, but my husband saw it and said, "It's got flowers on it.  And there's flourishes.  FLOURISH is not a Man-word."  haha... In other words... I still have a lot of practicing before I get mens' cards just right. :)

Thanks for visiting, and I hope everyone is having a wonderful start to their holiday season!
