Row row row your boat...

It's all about the manly men this week--or at least that's what seems to be the prevailing theme for many of the challenge blogs I check out. Since I can't seem to EVER leave a card free from sparkle, making a guy friendly card can be challenging for me.

I used a clean and simple layout for this card and featured stamps from the Paper Makeup Stamps set Sailing By. I really don't ink up this set enough, but it truly is a great set to keep for those masculine cards. I paper pieced the sails with some leftover Basic Grey scraps and then it came together like magic! Man, I love it when that happens!
