Inspire.Create.Challenge 015 - Masculine Cards

Wow, did you see the winner of the last challenge? What a fantastic project! I hope you know that anyone is allowed to take part, just hop over the the Design Team Page and read about how to do that. Follow the link in the Challenge picture below.
Inspire.Create.Challenge 015 - Masculine Cards - Wood Textures and Colorful Seasons
Today is a particularly 'challenging' challenge; Masculine Cards. I think a lot of us struggle with these, so I encourage you to go and have a look at the other projects for some amazing inspiration.

I think mine looks more complicated than it actually is. It really is just a bit of fussy cutting and some die cutting, with a little bit of stamping thrown in, just in case you thought I had forgotten!
I love the Wood Texture Designer Series Paper and have used it for so many projects, and to be honest, most of them have been for men! I have paired it with the Colorful Seasons Bundle of dies and stamps. This bundle really does cover all the seasons, so is a great investment. I don't yet know if it will be in the new Annual Catalogue (I will find out in a few days), but what I do know is that if it is, it will not be available with the 10% Bundle discount, so if you want it, you should order it now.
The two cards I made are very slightly different but only because I use Linen Thread on one and Copper Trim on the other. Which one do you prefer?
