I altered my background by dry embossing, heat embossing and sponging it. I used pewter embossing powder for the tree.
I faux stitched the border and the stamped image is from the Sale-A-Bration set Vintage Verses. I struggle with masculine cards. Cards just never feel finished to me without some sort of sparkle! LOL Most guys don't really care for the sparkle though! So, here sits my card.....sparkle free! :)
Stamps: Vintage Verses
Paper: Basic Black, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla
Ink: Early Espresso
Punches and Dies: 1 3/8" Circle and 1 3/4" Circle punch
Extras: Woodgrain EF, Pewter EP, Versamark, Paper Piercer Pack and White Gel Pen
Hope that the sun is shining on you and that your Tuesday feels more like a Tuesday and less of a Monday! :) Have a good! I will be back soonest with more to share!
