This card is for today's IC challenge - what a great website Anne!! And perfect since I really needed a masculine card for my BIL's birthday (which I'd been putting off!). I found the perfect inspiration today!!
This card is a bit whimsical for my BIL , but he's seen this Noble Deer stamp before and I had to find a way to make them look different. He's such an outdoorsman that I hope he doesn't mind the little pearls too (just couldn't help myself LOL!!)...
Thanks everyone for taking a peek.

There is nothing wrong with black pearls on a man's card, Audrey! Your tree reminds me of a zebra, kinda like "Can you find what's hidden in the picture?" Remember searching for those as a kid? Your leaves look fabulous and so is your placement of those noble deer! Awesome masculine birthday card~
Make the most of today, because tomorrow holds no guarantees!

Super WOW masculine card twinzi. What a twist on the noble deer. I know what you mean - hard to make them look different, but they are so related to the person that you just have to use it. Use it you did. All the elements are mind boggling and only you could think of. Now, at to zee pearlz - I'm not into putting pearlz on masculine card, but b/c they are dark they play a b/g part and don't stand out to me to be masculine. So, you get away with this one. If Pat Smethers can use flowers on her masculine cards and still make them look masculine, then I don't see why you can't use pearls. This is beyond AWESOME!

Good way to use that stamp set in a different way! It is a wonderful set. I love how you used gems but managed to keep this so masculine - that takes major talent! Love the dp you used too. Hugz!
