Masculine Card Challenge at Crafty Cardmakers

The theme this week at Crafty Cardmakers this week is to create a card for a man or boy. 

I made this moose card for father's day.  My dad loved the outdoors.   I sometimes have a real hard time coming up with an idea for a masculine card but I liked this idea. I used a large moose die cut along with Tim Holtz's tree stamps and inks and my watercolour crayons for the background behind the moose. For the layering paper I used a Stampin Up Stamp mesh stamp. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week.   Remember to pop over to Crafty Cardmakers blog to be inspired by our creative design team.

I would like to enter this card in the following chalenges
