Speedy's Challenge #23, Masculine!

Hello, this is my card for Speedy The Cat's Friends Challenge #23. This weeks challenge is to make a masculine card!
EDIT: ok apparently I've screwed up! The challenge this week is BUTTONS & BOWS...so pretend the buckle is a button...I have no idea how I managed that!

For may card, I used the new set Stinky Situation! I also used this weeks TLC292, stamping on tissue paper.
For the background, first I spritzed the tissue paper with water, and then I sprayed it with Vanilla Shimmer. It dries quick and easy with a heat gun. Once dry, I stamped it with the birch trees from the Stinky Situation set, then glued it to a piece of white cardstock.

You can see the shimmer better in this close-up. I matted this with blue and then a black card base.

The skunks were stamped with memento tuxedo black, onto white and cut out. I popped them up on the rectangle. The largest black rectangle is made with the lg deckled rectangle nesties.

Since the theme is masculine, I finished it off with ribbon and some HPH.

Please join us at Mark's Finest Papers Blog for this challenge, there's great prizes every week! For each card or project entered, you have a chance to win a stamp set. You can enter as many times as you like, and if you use MFP stamps, your name gets entered twice!
