Masculine creations

Masculine type cards are harder for me to come up with. Yes, I love my flowers and all things girly. BUT this card has a masculine touch, don't you think? For this one I ran the caramel colored card stock through the wizard with the Paisley impressability and then lightly went over it with black ink to highlight the embossing. It almost has a tooled leather look to it, I think. The black panel is a color core card stock and was wadded up (I know that is a very technical term, but . . . what can I do?), smoothed out and run through the wizard with the same Paisley impressability and then sanded. Distressing at its best. The sentiment was stamped with versamark and clear embossed and the border was stamped with black. I had to add some ribbon, but the black and white gingham isn't too girly, is it? I thought it was okay - even for a guy. I added a few strips of the distressed black to the inside of the card and a sentiment there too. What do you think? Manly enough?

If you can imagine a necktie of that color or pattern on a masculine guy... then it is passably masculine.
