Manly Men like Flowers, Don't They!!??

This card is for a friend who was just Baptised. I find this kind of card for a man very difficult, and I think this is my favourite male card to date. My DP is from my 6x6 V&A pack, ribbon is Marianne Creatables, as is the ribbon carrying border die. My Flower is cut from the tiny centre of the Fleur d lyes squares by nesties. I'll get back to you on the stamped sentiment. It was all in one, but I cut it so I could put it around the square. My digi is Arthurs Clip-Art. 

I thought the Flower in a matching warm grey wasn't too girly lol....besides many men like flowers.

This is a gorgeous card Linda. I love the black and white, and the way you stamped around the square with your sentiment. Love the flower, too. I know I've given flowers to Lang before. Hugs, dj

I love this card, Linda! I think it's perfect for a man's baptism. Beautiful yet masculine. I know what you mean about having trouble making manly cards and I have been trying to make myself make more of them just to stay in practice.

I have an award for you over on my blog. You can drop by and pick it up when you have time.
