Hybrid Masculine Sail Away

I don't know about you, but I'm usually short on masculine cards. I have tons of florals and pastels, etc. So this month I focused on creating some "manly" cards. Last week I shared the fun punched wrench card and tutorial, which was inspired by Chris Twing. Today I'm sharing a more nautical themed card using the direct-to-paper technique, along with My Digital Studio's digital stamp "Sail Away". (As a side note, Stampin' Up is offering a 30-day free trial of My Digital Studio Express, if you'd like to try out digital stamping or hybrid cardmaking.) 
I used the Stripes embossing folder and Cherry Cobbler baker's twine to add a bit of interest.  
So glad that you stopped by!

I think this is a really wonderful card, whether masculine or otherwise. I love the background you made for it................actually looks like the sea and sky are separate.
