Male card challenge

This weeks challenge at the ESAD group (Stampin'Up forum for demo's) was set by the lovely Karen Thomas from Luv to Stamp The challenge was to create a male card in 10 minutes and it had to include circles. Great challenge Karen. Thought it took 10mins to make, I think it took longer than that to think about what to create. Usually my cards have more layers and embellishments, so this was a nice change. So here's my very simple masculine card!
I've started off with a base card in Kraft. I've used Circle Circus to stamp up the circle images along the bottom panel of card. Then I've layered some strips of DP from Urban Oasis and distressed the edges. I've run another piece of Kraft cardstock thru the crimper and layered onto the DP. Then I've added a clear button with twine. The sentiment is from Wonderful Favourites and it's completed with two black brads.
With some left-over DP, I made a Sunny Boy container. These are just super cute and I love making them So this one matches the card nicely.

And here they are together. Thanks for the fun challenge Karen.
