The Crazies are going Masculine....well, with their cards, that is!!!!

Lynda is out hostess for the Crazy4Challenges this month.  She challennged us to make masculine cards since Father's Day is around the corner.  I used a newly released set by Mark's Finest Papers called All Aboard.  Please know that in real life the main image does not look so dark and muddy as it does in the picture.  I also used another stamp from the set to create the horizontal image border.  The sentiment comes from another recently released set called Floating Along.

Now be sure to check out the masculine cards by the rest of this fabulously talented team at the  Crazies Blog.  You are sure to be inspired.

I will also be entering this in the Speedy's Friends Challenge which was also to make a masculine card.

Beautiful card Joanne and you are right the photo doesn't do justice to this gorgeous stamp. Love what you did with the DP and the small piece looks kind of like RR crossing signs. Thanks for playing with Speedy the Cat.
