Above & Beyond - Masculine

Creating masculine cards is always fun for me. Because my family was fortunate to be immersed in boating, sailing and aviation, I can usually find a theme for a masculine card very quickly.
On a small panel of gray cardstock, a panel of aviation paper was adhered. Three clouds were die cut from cardstock, designer paper and vellum and adhered. The sentiment was stamped, the banner hand cut and backed with another panel in gray. The rust cardstock was texturized with an embossing folder and I chose to use the debossed side.
On a card base of gray, a panel of light cardstock was layered, then the rust cardstock The focal piece was backed with foam tape and adhered. The inside of the card was lined with coordinating designer paper and a panel of light cardstock.
The card is being submitted to:
