A Masculine Thinking of You Card

It's the weekend! wooo hooo!
So let's get our crafty on with some fun ribbons and trims! ;)

I needed a 'Thinking of You' type card for my uncle who is very ill. In his younger days, he used to love to hunt. I was so excited when I found a wonderful page of Woodland Deer Tags over at Polly's Paper Studio. You might remember that this store was a sponsor of our last challenge here at Really Reasonable Ribbon, but Ginny, the owner, is also on the Design Team! :)  It was so easy to add one of these images to a card for my uncle.
The tag itself is tied with dark brown plaid ribbon that I lightly inked to give it an aged feel.  A little snippet of brown burlap string ties the bow and is used on the big vintage button, too.  A piece of crochet trim tops the vellum stripe banner.  The pretty flower is one of the new coral open roses in the store. I added a few touches of ink to have it match the flowers on the tag.

More detailed information about the card can be found on my blog, "Just Coffee Please..."

I do hope you will join our 'Celebrate with Ribbon or Trim' challenge!  We would love to see your latest projects! :)

Enjoy your weekend!
