Cards for the men in your life

This weeks challenge over on the UK Crafters thread on the Cricut MB was to make a card for men/boys and include a button or buttons. My first card is one that I made in October last year for the Addicted to Cardmaking swop on the Cricut MB. I thought I would show it as I did not put it on my blog at the time.
My second card, which is for the challenge, was a difficult one for me as I am not known for using dark colours. However, I found these paper, which were a freebie from CraftsBeautiful, when I was sorting out my craft cupboard and thought they would suit this card. I used a stamped image of Edwin that a friend gave to me and coloured him with a mix of pencils and Whispers Brush markers. Then I added glossy accents to the chair buttons and the handmade button. In the end I enjoyed making this card and am now going to make another one with the leftover paper.
The cut file for the chair is available from Ruth is an amazing designer, stop by her blog and see what she creates and please don't forget to leave her a comment.
