Masculine cards are not easy

This is a card I made for my brother-in-law's birthday. I found this card so hard to make. All of my masculine type stamps are for fishing, hunting or are for little boys' and none were appropriate. I finally decided on this image which is a digi that I found on my laptop. I'm not sure where it is from but it kinda looks like a Dustin Pike image to me.

Here are the challenges that I'm entering my card in:

Sketch Saturday - for the sketch
Lollipop Crafts - Anything Goes
The ABC Challenge - A is for August
Dutch Dare Card - another Anything Goes
The Secret Crafter Sunday - It's a man's world

Great colouring of the pelican (that's all I have in my head now is the sound of them in Findinh Nemo - Mine, Mine, Mine. I'm enjoying having a look at all these great male inspired cards - loads of wonderful ideas. Thanks for drawing my attention to your blog and letting me visit.
