Over on Mark's Finest Papers their challenge #6 was to create something with Buttons & Bows. There was also a blog hop to win their sets of stamps.
I used a standard packaged card 4w x 5.5 h, a brownish Kraft color. Used my Cuttlebug and the Thanks #37-1134 embossing folder. Rubber stamped the sentiment "Thanks" (Quietfire Design) with Versafine Vintage Sepia and die cut with Spellbinders Fancy Labels. Strung a dark brown gauze type ribbon through it and tied a bow, adhered it to the card. Adhered the 3 Mother of Pearl type buttons that are in the brown tones with Glossy Accents. I think this card would also be great for a guy, even with the bow.
And it works for these challenges:
