Seize the Birthday Challenge #2

Hello again, blogger friends!  This is the card I made for the Seize the Birthday Challenge #2 which challenged us to use the same sketch from last week and make the card masculine.  Good idea!  My only problem (maybe challenge) is that I don't have many masculine stamps.  I think I need to remedy that situation in the near future.  

For this card, I used Artichoke paper as my background, Early Espresso for my matting, and some My Mind's Eye patterned paper.  I stamped the trees with an Inkadinkadoo stamp my husband got me.  I used a little bit of twine, too.  

I like this challenge:  I do need more masculine cards in my stash.  Thanks for stopping by!
