Male Vintage Birthday Card

I love making cards for men and I love the vintage style, so I made a card combining male and vintage. The image is from a sheet that I bought some months ago. I stitched around the edges, not too straight, to get a "rougher" look.
The background DP and the one used for the banner are from Maja Designs. I used a Die Namics die to make the banner, and I cut out the fence of kraft using a Marianne Creatables die. The fishtail banner is hand cut, the paper is from Panduro. The word "happy" is stamped and heat embossed, and I've used letter stickers for "birthday". The button I believe has been on one of my aunt's old cardigans - she gave me a bag full of buttons last year, containing buttons from hers and my late grand mother's old clothes. I tied a bow with some jute I got from a wrapped Christmas gift last year.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Craft Room Challenge - So Sentimental
2) Crafty Sentiments - Monochromatic
3) Cards For Men - Anything Goes
4) Crafty Boots - Recycle
5) Make it Monday with Kraft Outlet - Recycle or Re-Use
6) Crafty Catz - One for the Boys
7) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

Great birthday card Pia! I love this vintage do vintage so well!
Love that the button came from your grandma or great grandma's old clothes. I used one from Dh's old shirt but the button jar they were in has some from my grandma old jar too...In my case I knew it was from DH's shirt cuz I had just cut the shirt up for rags.

Love that little banner and the gorgeous papers you used.
