Masculine Birthday Card

Good morning!  Today's card was pretty much cased from a card I found in the gallery on Splitcoast Stampers from Claudia, you can see her card here.  I was looking for a masculine card that I could use for my stamp camp last month and I loved the colors and layout Claudia used (thank you Claudia). 
Instead of using the wolf from this set I used the deer and created the moon by cutting a Post-it Note circle and brayered color on top of glossy white paper.  Then after removing the circle I stamped the silhouette of the tree and deer, heated to set the black ink and cut it to size.  When brayering on the ink I started with the lightest color ink to the darkest using three colors altogether, So Saffron, More Mustard and Pumpkin Pie. 

Supplies: Nature Silhouette, Warmest Regards, Weathered BG, Ribbon, Brads, Glossy Paper, Heat Gun, Brayer, Post-It note, Square Nestie die, Pop dots, Sponge.  Colors: Basic Black, Really Rust, More Mustard, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie.
