You Make Me Happy

Here's a masculine card I put together.

I wanted to play with the Perfect Pennants stamp set from Stampin' Up so the whole design started with using that.  I used the Stampin' Up ink colors Yo Yo Yellow, Real Red, and Certainly Celery.

The patterned papers came from Echo Park's All About A Boy 6 by 6 pad.

The grosgrain ribbon has been in my stash forever, from one of my local craft stores.

The wooden hearts are from Studio Calico.

I usually struggle with masculine cards, but this one seemed to come together pretty easily.  I'm loving wooden embellishments right now and was pleased that they added some real fun while still keeping the masculine vibe.

Thanks for visiting!
