BBTB2 Challenge

Hello Crafters,
What a productive weekend this feels like. I think it may be because my wonderful fiance cleaned all the floors and did some of the laundry while I was out shopping with a friend yesterday. And no you can't borrow him :) Because all that was done it means I have had a great deal more time then usual this weekend to play in my craft room.

The challenge over on Bitten by the Bug Blog is to make something using the fishing cut from A child's Year. I don;t own this cartridge but can always use more masculine cards in my stash. So I made one using the fishing cut from the Going Places cartridge.
Hope your weekend is going as great as mine!

A2 size card
Base, black and beige cardstock - Recollections
Layers - Kraft card stock and textured look paper from stash
Hemp - from stash
Wooden button - from stash I got at a flea market
Top layer of cut- Going places circle feature cut @ 3"
Bottom circle - Going places ("no sign" on blackout) cut @ 3"
Brown ink (around edges) - Martha Stewart
Sentiment  - Pink by Design (Simply Everything Set)

Great masculine card! I think a lot of the cards I've seen the person will say it's a masculine card, but then they add glitter or flowers or something and I'm like... um the men I know don't like that stuff. So, I love seeing ideas like this that I feel would TRULY appeal to a man :)

OK you answered my question. So now that I know I can't borrow your hubby, let me move on to the card. LOL! This is a great masculine card. I love the colors you selected. The hemp and wooden button add the perfect accent.
