Craft US Crazy challenge 7 - Father's Day or Masculine colours/theme

Hello everyone - I can't believe where the time goes so here we are with another challenge at Craft US Crazy.  This weeks challenge is FATHER'S DAY and/or MASCULINE COLORS/THEME!!!! Let's not forget our Dad's out there. Father's Day is June 19th here in the UK and I believe it's the sdame in the US too so Father's Day theme is a good one for those of us here and across the pond. However if you don't fancy the Father's Day theme then feel free to make any masculine themed project.
We want all crafters to feel welcome, so if your crafting medium fits our challenge, then we welcome you to join! Whether it be sewing, scrapbooking, altering, cardmaking, candle making, whatever!! We hope you'll be joining us!!

 We have some awesome sponsors for you throughout the month of May!! Our sponsor for the first week of our Father's Day/Masculine challenge is.......

So come on over and have a go!

So onto my card - I find men's cards hard to do but needed to make something for my Dad so I went with a cute Popcorn the Bear stamp from Crafter's Companion.

I've kept it simple which I think works better for men's cards.  It is an 8 x 8 easel card using the yummy Kraft papers printed from A Double Sprinkle of Kraft CD and I've added some distress ink around the edges along with some string and buttons from my stash.  The image is coloured with Distress inks too.  I used a little Spellbinders tag for the sentiment and on the whole I'm quite pleased with this - I just hope my dad likes it too ;o)
Hope you all join in with our challenge this fortnight.
