Masculine card

I made this masculine card as a father's day card.  I got the image as an RAK, and someone did a lot of work on it, because that image is repeatedly masked and stamped. I was happy to feature it prominently. But I can't tell you who made the image or what color ink it was stamped in (black or dark brown).

To enhance the masculinity of the card, I also created a faux leather background (I was a little sad so much of it got covered up -- I love the results of this technique.).  A row of eyelets seemed like a good way to embellish this -- they always seem masculine and vaguely Western looking,

I'm entering this card in several challenges:

Clear It Out Challenge:  Male card, use metal from stash (my metal is eyelets. I have a lifetime supply and am always happy to clear a few out of the stash).
