Distressing for a Male...on a card that is...

 This is a card made for some masculine themed challenges. I was trying to use some items in my stash ...pulled out a sheet of die cut tags and a sheet of chipboard cutouts and began the card.
Followed a sketch challenge from Stamp, Scrap, & Doodle and this is what I came up with.  Stamped a train on one tag with distress ink and the sentiment on another and layered it on another tag and a chipboard cutout for the middle. For the bottom, I layered 2 chipboard pieces and aged with some ink. Distressed the card base, added a mat with distressed edges,  and added PP mat with distressing. Topped with rest of elements.
