Masculine Card

I know we just got done with Father's Day, but I had another masculine card to make today. I actually enjoyed it, too, because I pulled out my watercolor crayons too, which I haven't used in quite a while. I also used a stamp set that I haven't used in a while as well as the twill tape that hasn't seen the light of day in a long time either. So, it's like resurrecting the sleeping supplies today! lol Please forgive the messy faux stitching... I'll claim I was in a hurry and that's why it's a little "off"... (tee hee) Anyway, here's the result:

Sets: Weathered BG ( soon to retire!!), Coast to Coast (already retired)

Colors: Going Gray, Soft Sky, Not Quite Navy, River Rock

Other: Watercolor crayons, Aquapainter, wide twill tape, non-SU! hardware in Aged Copper, paper piercing tool/templates, white gel pen

I love how you did this card with one of my most favorite sets! I am sad to see the background retire too!
