Challenge # 48 - Manly man cards!

It seems I am always looking for inspiration when it comes to making cards for the men in my life, so I can't wait to see what you all come up with for this challenge!

This weeks Challenge:  Manly man cards
(Make a card or other masculine project for one of the men in your life - Dad, husband, son, brother, grandsons, friends - we love them all!!)

Inspiration from my fabulous Design Team!:

Jayne's shape card is awesome!  Makes me wish summer were here already!  I love the bright patterned paper she used and the twine threaded through the eyelets is perfect!


What a fun card!  I love how Amber's mustache on a stick matches the background paper!

The embossing and framed background on Kate's gorgeous card is so elegant!

I love all of the layers and fun details on this card! Just beautiful (but manly!

I love the muted colors and the stitching on Marlene's fun card!
