Paper Crafting Challenge #7: Masculine

So Kimberley from the Wienerhoneymooners blog suggested I sign up for the new-ish challenge over at the http://www.challenges.papercraftingmagic.com/ blog, especially since I have quite a few masculine cards recently made! Here is one of my submissions--
This card came together fairly easily and I think it turned out to be both maculine and rustic while exuding a bit of elegance... precisely what I was going for! Unfortunately, for the life of me I cannot recall which patterned paper stack I used  but I used two different designs from the stack, backed with thick, cream cardstock from Paper And More. Then, using Versamark, I stamped a fern from the Green Meadows stamp set from PTI and sprinkled gold embossing powder over it. The sentiment is stamped on a Recollections heavy, textured cardstock and "Sail Away" is from the masculine monogram stamp set from Just Rite. I did some scoring and folding to turn it into a dimensional banner and popped it on some foam tape. To finish it off, I used some natural, rustic twine.... and there you go!
Here is a close up of the sentiment so that you can see the added texture, which I feel added depth and dimension.

And here is a close up of the embossed fern--such a beautiful stamp set!

That's all for now, thanks for stopping by!
