Half Way Inspiration for Unstampabelles

This is my Design Team Half Way Inspiration card for Unstampabelles Challenge #19 - Use One or More Dies I have decided to have a male theme.  I dug out my Large and Small Spellbinder Octagons dies and cut a large octagon from white gloss cardstock and the smaller octagon from the Past Spodia patterned paper range from Blue Edge Crafts.  The base card and next layer are Linen Textured Cardstock.  I added a strip of Stampin Up Chocolate Chip through the hexagons which I topped with a couple of ribbons from my stash. The sentiment is a rub-on and then finally found a button which threaded with kitchen twine.

This card has a duel purpose.  My half way inspiration for Unstampabelles which Craftmad is sponsoring.  It also is one of my swap cards for this month at Craftmad (gallery here), the theme just happens to be two card Using One or More Dies. :-)

I would like to share this card over at
