Masculine Birthday~Sort Of...


Hello!  Today is my day to post on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog, and I am sharing a card I made for my brother in law.   I used this beautiful tree image from the PTI set Through The Trees and added some fab 1.5" Natural Jute Ribbon with some super gorgeous Satin with Grosgrain Edge Moss Ribbon. I was afraid the big bow would take away from the masculinity, but my hubby assured me it was still a masculine looking card:) I have such a hard time making a card without a bow! The sentiment comes from the Verve set Big Wish and the dp is retired SU Autumn Vine DSP.



Thank you so much for stopping by!  My daughter has a soccer game bright and early this morning, and it's actually pretty chilly down here in Florida!  We're going to have to pull out the jackets!  Have a great weekend:)

awww...I miss soccer season already!

I think the colors and the burlap make it masculine for sure - - even with your loopy Nesties and your bow...he won't think it girly at all.

Cold...in Florida...who are you kidding? :P

This is really beautiful! The bow is awesome, but doesn't take away from the masculinity.
