Fishing with Gus

This week's challenge at Totally Stampalicious is to make a Masculine Card.  I love this challenge because I never have enough masculine cards.  I chose to use the newly released Gus Fishing stamp set for my card.  I decided to go with earth tones for this card.  The image is matted on hunter green cardstock.  Now there's a color that I almost NEVER use, but yet it seems appropriate for GUS.







Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card today!  I hope you get a chance to play along in our Masculine card challenge this week!

Hunter green is perfect for masculine cards. Good job on this one and some nice texture going on.
