Masculine Thank You

We need to tell guys "thank you" sometime too!  I never seem to have a thank you card for just a male so here goes......clean, simple, twine, no fancy embellishments (not that I do that much anyway), Kraft card stock, some "male-ish" DP, and embossing!  I used some Ponderosa Pine (CTMH) card stock and ink and the image is from the Lovely as a Tree set from SU.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.  I stamped out the image and then popped it up on Dimensionals.    The embossing folder I used was Distressed Stripes.




The sketch I used is from CAS(e) This Sketch and I'll enter it in their challenge.  I'll also enter into the challenge at Mark's Finest Papers (Pop It Up).

Hope everyone is having a great weekend and thanks for stopping by...........
Lynn

A great man's card! I love that pine tree - well it comes out of my all time favourite SU set! One of the very first sets that I ever bought!
The pieces of twine just give your card that finishing detail.
