A Manly Romance Novel

... or a masculine card
made with Prima's Romance Novel collection. My stash of cards for men has once more dwindled down to nearly zero, so it's time to replenish. Although I normally wouldn't have thought this collection right for a man, I think it came out just fine. We know a lot of guys who like gardening and yard work, so I don't think the rose stamp is out of place. Besides, it adds just a splash of color and these papers are all so beautifully vintage looking.


My card has a base
of Recollections kraft cardstock... which seems to have been out of stock for some time now at our Michaels... along with black textured cardstock from Core'dinations.


The sentiment is from
Verve's Joy for the Journey stamp set. I love this set, and I really need one similar in an anniversary theme. Any ideas?
