OLL challenge #75: A card for a man

Good morning and welcome to another OLL challenge!
This fortnight we are looking for Man cards.
I don't know you, but masculine cards are my least favourite type of cards - it is always such a challenge to find the right image or embellishments or colours - not too girly, not too colourful, not too fussy. But this time I used one of OLL CDs and I am happy with the result.
Blue base card; backing paper and topper from the Watercolour Memories CD; the birthday sentiment is a Hero Arts stamp; ther rest from my stash.
If you, like me, struggle to come up with ideas for man's cards, have a look at the OLL site for more inspiration and great designs!

Onto some challenges:
Crafty Ann - Birthday card
Fun with Shapes and More - Happy Birthday
Creative Craft World - For a male
Stamp Something - Use a digi
Kraftin'Kimmie - Twine or floss
Paper Sundaes - Stripes

Have a nice week!

Fabulous card - I'm not keen on male cards either but I'll have to do one soon for my DH's birthday next week so thank you for sharing your creativity with us at Crafty Ann's
