Masculine birthday color challenge

Wow....creating original designs are just so much more difficult to do then just CASEing someone!

I have really been challenged...I think/hope in a good way in stretching my creativity in doing cards from scratch as challenged by the Make it Monday challenge of using color inspiration!

The picture of the color inspiration uses the following colors (I leave out vintage cream)
Kraft
Terracotta
Aqua
Linen
I chose this color combo because I thought it was the closest to being Masculine compared to the others!

I always try to make a masculine card when I am working on cards because I need them just as much in my life as the others!

I am not sure I like the leaves in right side and right bottom (which are covered).  but it is done and I hope it passes my husband's okay for guy enough so I can use it for my married nephew's birthday coming up! :)

Products Used:  all pti unless designated
Cardstock:  Kraft, linen, terracotta, aqua 
inks:  ranger distress inks vintage photo, antique linen, pti aqua
stamps:  masculine motif set, postmarks backgrounds set
others:  framed out 3 die, linen thread, spellbinder circle die, stars border die, sewing machine

I am also entering it into several other Challenges as follows....

Fab n Funky Maleness challenge...well, it is hopefully full of male ness
Simon Says STamp Birthday challenge...it does say happy birthday
Papertake weekly Anything Goes...think it qualifies :)
Craft Your passion Lots of texture challenge...linen thread, sewing, tearing, poped up frame die...hope it counts!
