Getting masculine for valentines

Hi Crafty Pals,

I have been busy checking out different challenges and decided to create a card that can be entered into two challenge blogs this week. Pals Paper Arts (#286) gave us a great sketch

Pals Paper Arts 286 sketch

and Stampin’ Royalty (#315) asked for Cards for Guys.

So as I still needed to make my hus (love you hun!) a card I thought why not try my hand at a combo. The card I came up with was

Guy Greetings and Go Wild Designer Series Paper

I have had the Guy Greetings stamp set for a while, but not inked it up. Like I have said before masculine cards always seem to be difficult for me.

I have been playing around with a new backdrop for my card photos and thought the wood grain looked pretty good with the brown/black tones in the card. Please let me know what you think as after all this blog is meant for you to enjoy 🙂

Without spoiling things for him too much I have also made a cute gift card holder, but no gift card yet!
