Peace and Quiet

It's my husband's birthday next week and, every year, when asked what he'd like for his birthday, his reply is "peace and quiet".  Well, when I saw this Penny Black stamp at the SECC last October I knew just who it'd be perfect for!
I coloured the image with Promarkers to match my gorgeous new My Mind's Eye papers.  Create and Craft had a great deal on five MME 6x6 pads and I was led astray by someone else who was ordering some for herself!
The stars were made with Xcut dies and I topped them with a Boofle button threaded with baker's twine.  Some Card Candi and some tiny blue pearls were all I needed to complete my card.
 I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Allsorts - #191 - masculine
Crafty Calendar - what's new? - I used new papers
Crafty Catz - #167 - cute as a button
Here Come the Boys - #44 - bingo - buttons, twine, image
Jellypark - button up
Glitter 'n' Sparkle - #17 - male cards
4 Crafty Chicks - #126 - buttons
Stamp 'n' Doodle - male birthday
The Squirrel and the Fox - #36 - something new, I used new papers
Sweet Sketch - #190 - sketch
