After checking out the sketch made by friend Linda at Freshly Made Sketches I decided to play along.
The sketch lent itself to a masculine card and I felt that Moroccan Nights would be the perfect stamp set for this challenge.
My card is simple and follows the sketch closely. You know how it is when you create a masculine card. It cannot be too fancy or have too many embellishments. Heat Embossing with Copper Embossing Powder allowed me to have a bit of shine on my card without making it look too feminine.
The combination of 5/8" Burlap Ribbon & a strip of Early Espresso Moroccan Washi Tape definitely bring my card back into the masculine realm. However, the cute little sentiment from Sweet Stack stamped on Very Vanilla C.S. with Early Espresso Ink gives my card just a touch of cuteness. After cutting it with a scallop circle from Layering Circles, I mounted it on a circle of Early Espresso C.S. that was also cut with the Layering Framelits Circles.
