Taylored Expressions Blog Hop - Make it Masculine!

Today I'm participating in the Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop - the Theme is Masculine.  You have to use TE stamps released prior to March 2011.

 And here's my card

I didn't have any specific masculine stamps to use -  so I used my cuppies to make an Anniversary card for  Kent - our anniversary is coming up in June - so now my card is made! ( you know how we card stampers never seem to have cards for our own family?!?!?)  Inside I stamped 'match made in heaven'!  Which is exactly what we have...!

What makes it masculine??  The colorful but dark colors, the minimal accessories and layers, and the twine!  Do you agree???  My sentiment is from A Year of Sweet Sentiments and my cuppies are from the Downtown Diva set

Here are all the bloggers participating in this fun hop today - let's go check out how to make it masculine - shall we??!






Stamps:  Taylored Expressions - A Year of Sentiments, Downtown Diva
