Masculine Card, Sketch Challenge

Hi, everyone!
Yesterday was a really rough day for me (I'll spare you the details). I did manage to sit down long enough to make a card, though.
This card uses an image from Beccy's Place. She has a few really great masculine images on her blog, and I had decided to work on a sketch challenge over at Cards For Men. This is their Challenge No. 1.
Here is the sketch layout
The Stamping Boutique is hosting their challenge this week, and the winner will receive five digi's from their store, so hop on over to join in the fun!
For my card, I used PSE to turn the digi image into a Brush. I chose the blue color for the brush outlines and then colored the rest of the image in with PSE. I used some paper glaze on the clock hands. The paper is all from from scrap pile (I have quite a mountain these days!). I used an EK Success Border Punch/Embosser on the sentiment and rectangle layers, and my nesties cut out my oval.
Thanks for taking a peek! I'm hoping today is more productive and ends with some free svg's for you! :0)
Happy Crafting!
