Midweek throw down- Masculine cards

On the OWH Stars and Stamps blog the midweek throw down challenge is to make masculine cards. I combined the OWH Stars and Stamps sketch for this week with the masculine card challenge. The wonderful freebie motorcycle digital images is by Bird on her blog.
http://www.birdscards.com/Default.aspx?tabid=65 The metal looking plates are cut from tetra pak and embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. It makes such a great masculine touch in my opinion! The ticket stamp is from Hero Arts. This is the first time I've used it. Felt just right with the motorcycle.

I LOVE your OWH masculine sketch challenge card! Your diamond plate looks fabulous, I need to ask what's tetra pak? Do I have some and not know it?
