More Mens Cards

Well its that time of year for mens birthdays, and there are more to come yet!
Some days its so hard to come up with cards for men, and whats worse there are to be no over the top embellishments. These guys just don't do cute!!!
And I love making cute cards......

These have both been created using the Stampin Up Autumn collection papers.
The top one I have also used the Autumn collection stamps as well
I have distressed around the edges in Wild Honey and Walnut Stain.
All images stamped with Colorbox Chalk Brown.

This card has been stamped with the pine tree from Stampin Ups Lovely as a tree set.
I have distressed the edges with Fired Brick and Walnut Stain.
Image and sentiment stamped with Colorbox Chalk Brown.

I will be entering the cards in the following challenges
Priscilla Styles MMSC #64
Charisma - Something with a tail (hopefully my lyre bird counts)
OSCC - Patterns
SSS - dotty
