SOS Challenge #47 - Make it Masculine

I made this card for the Shopping our Stash Weekly Challenge #47, and this week they're looking for masculine cards. This challenge worked out great for me, because I'm finishing up a package to send to OWH and they're looking for cards for the guys. I used a retired SU! image, stamping with versamark on early espresso and embossing with gold. The panel behind it is PTI rustic cream and the dsp is BG kraft. The "train tracks" are actually a SNSS fence die I cut from kraft card stock and snipped the tops off. The sentiment is from MFP, done with word window and fancy label punches.  A die cut corner and a few square brads completed this card.
Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!
