Masculine Card

365 Cards Challenge for today: Divide your card into 4 parts representing the 4 basic elements: water, fire, earth, and air.
Not sure if I missed something (I probably did), but here's what I came up with.

While I loved the card Amy made this week, I couldn't carbon copy it for the challenge.  No other ideas came to mind except to use a photo of the elements themselves.   I wanted something I would actually use, not just a card for a challenge so....

I made a mosaic of a camping  picture and matted each corner with coordinating (to the elements) card-stock.  Added a button in the elements colors to the corners and colored the button in the middle to match the corner buttons.
