Masculine Hello Card

The sketch from Artful Delight inspired this card.  I am trying to create more masculine cards and hopefully, this one works.  Here's the sketch that inspired the card:

I stamped the fern image on white cardstock and added detail with colored pencils and ink then fussy cut around it.  The smaller ferns were punched  from brown and white cardstock.  The large fern is matted on woodgrain dp and this is adhered to a panel that I dry embossed.  I added detail and the sentiment with a gel pen and marker.

Fern stamp (can't find a company name on it.), Crayola colored pencils, Fiskars Texture plate, EK Success circle punch, Mark It: gray, Sakura white gel pen, Studio G pigment ink, Punch Bunch fern punch (small ferns),Core'dinations Pure Chocolate Cardstock, DCWV Cardstock, Green Stack, White card base
