I made this card for my Dad for his birthday. I struggle with Masculine cards, but I think this one turned out pretty masculine. I used the Stampin Up set By the Tide. I embossed the fish with some sparkly blue - okay sparkly isn't masculine. I thought I had some flat blue, but I didn't. I distressed the edges of the kraft cardstock and inked with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink. I tacked it down using brads. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Hampton Arts and was stamped in Momento Rich Cocoa ink. The background paper is from a 6X6 paper pad by We R Memory Keepers - Anthologie.
