What a fun set.  Use it for a masculine card or a kid's birthday.  I chose to use Sepia by Versafine on my first card to give it an aged look.  This second card was made for the sketch challenge on SCS last week.  As I was making this card, I was listening to the news on ABC and they announced that it was "National Talk Like a Pirate Day"...now, what's the odds that my card would fit the day!!! ARGH, Matey....Ho, ho, ho...let's find that treasure!

You, too, can have fun with this awesome set!!!  Now, on to the next designer, Pat G....wait til you see what she and the others have come up with!
Good luck with the hop!
