Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #73

It is time again for a Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge! The NEW Challenge is to make a masculine project, plus ribbon! I have been making more masculine cards lately, and thought I would make one that would be good for a boy or a teen. 

I colored this cute The Greeting Farm image with Copic markers. I just now realized that I used both orange and red on his shirt, but forgot to add red to the card. Rats!

One of my favorite RRR ribbons is the diamond satin. I think I have it in every color! I used the orange from the Primary Diamond Satin assortment on the card in two places.

Besides being hooked on ribbon, I am also hooked on buttons. RRR has a nice variety of Buttons Galore buttons. I have used one from the Key Lime Pie assortment. I tied some bamboo cord through the button holes, because I just don't "do" naked buttons!

I wanted to give you a peeky at my layers. I used foam squares to add dimension to my projects. Normally I used my ATG for attaching the paper, but both my ATG dispensers ran out at the same time! So I used my precious supply of Scor-tape for this card!

Here is a view of the inside of the card. I finally had a chance to use my NEW Memory Box vintage bike die! 

And for a special treat, I pulled out one of my old sketches to use for the card.
