Happy Birthday Bro

Hi. Today I am sharing a card I made for my brother's birthday. It's such a task to make cards for men. I can only think of Blue and Brown colors to be used :)
I have layered 2 PPs for the card and 1 embossed plain blue paper, which is actually not quite visible.
For the center part I did some stamping in black on the blue oval die cut. Then I stuck the alphabets on top of the die cut.
The black ribbon is from my stash and the button is from Pie Lane.
Also wanted to share that I was in Top 3 at Lulupu for their Make you own embellishments challenge for this card and I also won Hussena's challenge at Yvonne's blog for my Sweet peas card.
