Masculine Valentine

The current challenge at
Sugar Creek Hollow is to make a vintage, shabby chic or primitive style Masculine Valentine.

I tried not to put any
feminine elements on this card, but I just couldn't pass up on the two blingy buttons and the glitter. After all, it is a Valentine and it needs some pazazz!

This is My Mind's Eye
6x6 Blush Designer Paper Pad with Tim Holtz Core'dinations Worn Lipstick. The edges were 
sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The love sentiment is flanked with a piece from Tim's Ideaology Locket Keys collection.

The buttons are from
my stash. I purchased the die-cut from an Etsy shop... painted it with white acrylic, added a coat of Mod Podge and Twinklets Diamond Dust. A bit fussy, but I hope the Penmaker will like it.... and by the way... here is one of his latest creations...

Check out the clip.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Linda, this is a GORGEOUS masculine Valentine, one of the nicest I've ever seen. The die cut you embellished is just perfect to highlight those cool buttons from your stash. Must be a heavy card! ;) The Penmaker's latest pen is so handsome.
