Today's card has a male feel as my card were getting a bit too girly. the main image is stamped in Always Artichoke and then re-stamped with Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder ( made possible by the super stamp-a-ma-jig). The embellishment is made from a piece of silver Hodgepodge Hardware threaded with linen thread. Everything for this card is from Stampin' Up!
