Masculine card

OK I’m sure I’m not the only one who finds guy cards difficult. But I have to say I liked this one alot. Will I give it to “my” dad, NO! LOL! But I still love it.

 A girl on SCS and I switched images (sorry I forget who!) and she was sweet to send me several of this image in vanilla and white. Its Classic pick ups by Stampin up! You may not see that the image is filled in with pearlescent pastels. I like the rustic, vinatage-y (yeah I know its not a word but I like it) feel. I LOVE my Prism paper! Its got a soft textured side which was perfect for this card. Plus it matched my ribbon and PP. I love combining my goodies from different companies. What do you think? Should I buy this set?

Let me know what masculine sets you love, and feel free to enable me with a link. This is my toughest area of creativity!
