Young Crafters Unite! #3 - Masculine Cards

Hi Everyone, it's time for our next Young Crafters Unite! Challenge.  This month we are challenging you to create a Masculine card!

I'll be honest, Masculine cards are not an area I am well practiced in.  I guess because my creations seem to lean more toward the bright and cute side of the scale, Masculine can be a challenge for me.  However I decided that guys can appreciate bright and fun design as well so with that in mind here is what I created.

I used a new set from My Cute Stamps for this one and stuck with a manly nautical feel...well not too manly.  :)  I think this card could work for both a grown up or kids.  I actually restrained myself from making the sentiment read "Ahoy Matey" but change the anchor to a skull and you've got a pirate ship! I look forward to seeing your Masculine creations!

Be sure you check out all the other amazing design team creations.

This is a great card, Chari! I think you struck the perfect balance of masculine and bright/cute.
