In a sky full of stars

I haven't managed to complete any challenges today as I needed a male birthday card. I find them so difficult to do but I found this very masculine paper and took some inspiration from it.

Supplies: Brown and white cardstock, Sandylion patterned paper, Dovecraft brads, rik rak from stash.

I have the WORST time with boy / men cards too! This is fantastic! I always hesitate to use ribbon of any kind on a masculine card, but I LOVE your use of rick rack on this! Wonderful!

Deb - ? for you . . . do you hand poke all of the holes in your cardstock, or do you have a tool that does that for you? I just love that effect!!

Deb, I love your cards, they're all real masterpieces. You're a great inspiration :)

Deb - I'm impressed that you make all of those holes with a paper piercer (one of my necessary tools every single day since I use a lot of brads!) I was thinking that maybe you used one of those Cutter Bee rotary piercer tools. Good job . . . very evenly spaced poked holes!
