Cloudy Day Masculine Card

This card is for Mary Jo's SCFC1 Challenge. I found a great card by Wendy Weixler using this great sketch that I have seen around a lot lately. I took a VERY FEMININE card that Wendy made and turned it into a VERY MASCULINE card of my own.

The funny thing is that Wendy's card attracted me, because it used the Inspired by Nature stamp set and pink. However, I decided that it was time for me to move away from the flower (did you notice I just used the grass in this card???) and pink for at least one card. You are bound to see them again--just warning you so you are prepared! :)
This card is so outside my comfort zone. #1 it is masculine -- I tend to shy away from them.
#2 I used an aquawriter and did a little watercoloring for the grass. I tend to saturate my paper and make a mess. I admit my cardstock was WET, but I have grass! AND...did you notice my clouds? I have seen Gretchen make BEAUTIFUL cards using her handmade cloud template. My clouds and template need some work, but I was pleased w/ my first attempt at making clouds. :) Whew! I'm tired... this card caused me stress... LOL
I really liked how it turned out though and I hope you do too!
Here it is:
