Holley! That's a great masculine card! The shading on the card stock along with the eyelets and twine compliment the image so well. Just terrific!

This is a GREAT masculine card. I have that stamp set too - one of the few that is perfect for masculine cards. Thanks for participating in the sketch challenge.
