Masculine birthday card

There are lots of birthdays coming up in my family, so this card will go to one of the guys celebrating. I used this week's sketch from the Card Positioning System Blog, CPS262.
The tiger (from Raindrops on Roses) is stamped in Colorbox Chalk chestnut roan ink; I did an out-of-the-box cut and cut it with an oval nestie.  The sentiment is computer generated, and I didn't realize at the time that the font I chose doesn't line up on the bottom of the letters. That probably doesn't bother most people, but I've spent a fair share of my working life making sure type lines up (among many other picky details, of course), and it does bother me.
Papers are all from a ridiculously old pack from DCWV, which until I made this card had been used exactly once.  I must use up old supplies!
The embellishment is baker's twine strung through a spacer bead that sort of vaguely looks African. It's so hard coming up with good embellishments on masculine cards. What sort of embellies do you use on a card for a guy?
