Masculine Mini

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by! Today I wanted to share a cute little (4" square) card I made for this week's WSC challenge - to make a masculine card.
 90% of my cards are really girly, so it's nice to make a "guy card". I like to use a lot of texture on masculine cards, and usually stick to a sentiment as the focal image. I've used textured cardstock on this one, as well as embossing a panel which I then brayered with white ink. The brads have been in my stash for years and years and the wooden button recently came home with me in a pack from a discount store. I've added some (not very straight!) stitching ala Joanne. I need some practice!
Inside I've gone with the same scrappy look - such a good way to get rid of little bits and pieces of paper.
