Artistic Inspirations sponsored by Dilly Beans

Well this weeks challenge certainly made me think, as at first glance I felt all the images were quite female project orientated and challenge this week was to make something Masculine.

Challenge #79

3 images for the winner

Having looked at the images and reading the sentiment on the image I chose I thought I would use it to make a Valentines card for my dear husband.

The first challenge was to find some background paper that I liked, I loved the tiny hearts in the background on my first choice paper, and you can't go far wrong with stripes on a masculine card in my opinion, I printed the digi stamp onto some linear gradient filled paper, added a few embellishments and a punched scalloped circle.
