Is It Masculine?

So, I’m wondering if this card is masculine enough to give it to my husband. I made it last week while he was out of town, and have been trying to decide about it ever since. The flowers are blue and brown, so that makes it masculine, right?????

I used Brilliance Cosmic Copper ink to stamp the image and the sentiment. The dp and coordinating chipboard tag are from Cosmo Cricket’s Wanted line (purchased from Jacksonbelle). To make everything look sufficiently *aged*, I rubbed on some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tea Stain (on the Soft Sky base, the Creamy Caramel panel, and the Very Vanilla one). The Creamy Caramel panel was run through my Cuttlebug.

I used my new Martha Stewart edge punch to get the scalloped edge.  Yes, the $14.99 punch that I paid $1.49 at Michael’s last week. I was so excited to get such a deal! They don’t know why it rang up that way, and none of the other punches did. I took this one and ran!

Stamps: LAD Far East
Paper: Soft Sky, Creamy Caramel, Very Vanilla, Cosmo Cricket dp
Ink: Brilliance Cosmic Copper, Tim Holtz Distrss – Tea Stain
Accessories: Cuttlebug, MS edge punch, Primas, copper brads, Cosmo Cricket chipboard, ribbon

Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!
