Loves to Scrap-Manly Monday

Today's Manly Monday will be toward the bottom of this post because I am Guest Designer at 

with my card today. The challenge is anything goes and the sponsor is

I made this card using a Stamp N Plus lighthouse stamp that I colored in with distress inks onto watercolor paper by Tim Holtz. Then I inked the edges of the image and the card base with distress ink and matted the image onto green and brown cardstock by Coredinations. The patterned paper is by DCWV and the banner die cut and sentiment stamp are by Stampin Up. 

Here are the Manly Monday cards for this week. Be sure to stop by and give them some love.
