CBCC #24 - Masculine Valentine



This week's CBCC Challenge is to make a masculine Valentine. Do you know how hard that is???? :-)

I saw this sketch on the OCCC blog, and thought I could try that out. I used "manly" colors from the Basic Grey Archaic collection, and set it off with Dark Chocolate cardstock, ink, and ribbon from PaperTrey Ink.

The large sentiment comes from Chrissy's Love Blooms (SNSS), and it is just the perfect sentiment for giving to your hubby. The "Be Mine" is from a dollar stamp I picked up at Michaels several years ago.


Check out what the other Challenge Chicks have created for you:

Courtney Fowler

Sparkle Smith

Ink: Dark Chocolate (PTI), Walnut Stain distress ink
