TS Monday Challenge...make a masculine card

I had a surprise grad announcement show up in the mail box for my first cousin's oldest son. I know that makes him a cousin, too, but I don't know all the correct descriptions for what kind of cousin he is. The challenge at Totally Stampalicious to make a masculine card was perfect timing for me. Teen boys are so hard to make cards for, but this frog is cool enough for just about any teen! He's one of the original images from TS and still one of my favorites! I found these papers a while back over at Hobby Lobby. I had never seen this company before and only at HL. It's called a Glitz Pack and the line is called Hey Dude. They are really cool papers for guys....lots of rock and grunge designs in these great neutral colors with just a splash of bright. I used SU!'s star punches to make layered starts for the bg. Stamped the sentiment on the largest of the stars. The frog was colored with Copic markers and then I went over the whole image with Versamark and clear embossing powder to give him some stiffness when I cut him out. He is popped up on dimensionals and has a great shine to him. I'm pretty pleased with how this came out. I added a couple of graduation sentiment stickers to the inside which is finished off with a layer of the light paper since I used a really dark brown card stock for the base.
I bet there's a Father's Day, graduation, or birthday card for a male you have on your list of things to do, so why not make it up and enter it in the TS challenge this week. This week they are giving away a set of stamps...the Hawt Dawg set that is so versatile and wonderful for masculine cards.
