Fish'n with Masculine Monday!

Good Monday morning!  I hope everyone had a nice weekend.  The weather here was wonderful for my Park to Park Half Marathon.  Now to get ready for the next one in November.  Today over at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration, it's Masculine Monday.  If you are like me, I struggle sometimes with the right card to create for a guy.  Its either not having the right DSP or the right stamp set.  Well with my card, I lucked out and had both. 

My masculine card using regal and neutral colors.  I decided to work with the Venetian Romance DSP pack and the By the Tide stamp set.  Together, they make the perfect masculine card.  I used the background stamp on my window frame shape.  Stamped, colored and cut out the fish.  Before attaching the fish with a foam dot, I wrapped the framelit layers with some twine.  I add some bling (yes, even a masculine card needs some kind of bling!), just a soft suede candy dot in each corner of my dsp layers.
Supplies Used
Cardstock ~ soft suede, very vanilla, island indigo
Ink ~ soft suede, island indigo, pistachio pudding
Stamp Sets ~ By the Tide, Itty Bitty Banners
Misc. ~ window frame framelit set, twine, neutral candy dots
Thanks for stopping by!  Don't forget to leave me some "love" and head over to our main blog, to see what the the design team members have created.  I hope we INKspire you to go create too!

Love your card! I love this stamp set, By The Tide! Also love By The Seashore and The Open Sea. All three of these stamps sets are a must for those masculine cards! They pretty much pair up to anything, Oh and yes, even masculine cards need bling!
