Sponged masculine card

I made this card for another exchange I am part of!! I printed a variety of silhouette images when I made these cards and I have a few left sitting on my desk so I decided to use one for this card.  I sponged blue on the top and bottom and added some green in the middle to create the horizon for the image.  I layered it onto a rectangle of decorative paper which had been distressed and added two trimmed punchies (Decorative Label -SU) - one on either side.  I added a layered punchie greeting and a bit of fiber as an accent.  I layered all these pieces onto a blue card front which I had sponged with blue and green ink and also stamped with a distressed background (Worn - SU).
I like it!!  I added the greeting with 3D foam tape and then added the knotted fiber using a glue dot.  I hope it will not be too thick to mail regular first class.  I always get them to check because you just never know with handmade cards!!
