Times Gone By - Male themed Card.

Hello to everyone.  I am sharing a male themed card which I recently made, for the husband of my friend.  
I do not find male card design comes easily, but remembered my Times Gone By CD-ROM from Crafter's Companion and found these wonderful images and elements!




Materials used to make this card are listed below.
 Burlap, button and shaped card base are from my stash.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post and look at my card.

You're not alone Laine, I am always hugely critical of any male cards I make as I don't do them enough. Yours, on the other hand, hits the spot perfectly. Love the texture of the burlap and button. xx
