Masucline and Sketchy for Friday Mashup

This week for The Friday Mashup Holly is bringing us a great challenge...make a masculine card, create a project using the sketch provided or mash it up and create a masculine project using the sketch.

I was really happy to see this challenge. I'm not a frilly type of girl and I tend to gravitate towards darker colors, colors more associated with guys I guess! Its just easier for me than trying to figure out what to do with softer, more feminine colors.

For this card I mashed it up and used a set that will be retiring in a matter of days...Nature Silhouettes. I've loved this set for a while but only bought it when I found out it was retiring. Nothing like that's procrastinating! It's okay though because if you have been by my blog before you'll know that I use retired sets all the time! If I like it, its going to get used, retired or not :)

I used Woodland Walk DSP to go along with the sketch and image. Talk about perfect for this stamp set! I really like how this came out and I think I'll be giving this card to my hubby for Fathers Day!

Now that you're done checking out my card why don't you head over to The Friday Mashup and see what the rest of the design team has come up and then play along with us!
