Stamping 411 sketch challenge/Masculine

Good Saturday Morning dear friends!  I am enjoying this wonderful spring weather we have been having here in NC.  We are suppose to have some heavy rain today with thunderstorms so guess I will be inside most of today!  And, if it don't rain (doubtful) I will be working outside some and then soccer games.  Fun, Fun!

Stamping 411 got me going last night with their new sketch for today!  I was trying hard to decide and while going through my stamps, I wanted to use this stamp set called Uncharted Territories by Stampin' Up!  Had not used it in a while.  Then I went through my papers and this paper jumped right out at me.  It is called "Well Worn" and also Stampin' Up!  I actually bought it just for masculine cards and I am so happy with the turn out of this one.  I even used the rest of the stamp set inside which I will show you in a moment.  The sentiment on this one actually came from another SU set called "Happiest Birthday Wishes" and had "dear one" underneath and I only used the first part of it and inked it using my markers.  Another reason I love my markers.

Here is a side view!

And of course as promised, the inside!
