A Masculine Valentine's Day Card

I just love Valentine's day, all the bright colours and the fun of it all. I start getting ready for Valentine's day by making some red and pink hearts for around the house, hanging up a banner that I made a couple of years ago and by making cards for the people in my life. 
I find it really easy making Valentine's day cards for all the  females in my life but it always a challenge for me to make a masculine card.
For some help I went and looked at the Mojo Monday site for a sketch I could use and I just loved the sketch that was for this weeks challenge.

Here is the card I made for my husband this year. I waited until now so that he wouldn't have a chance to see it before Valentin's day.

The red patterned paper is from Doodle Bug and the rest of the paper is Recollections. The black edges have been distressed and the red edges of the heart has been inked up with some Tim Holts Fire Brick Red distress ink. The heart and the tag was cut using my Cricut and my Plantin Schoolbook cartridge and the banner was cut with a Papertrey Ink die. The sentiment was stamped  with three little stamps from an Impression Obsession stamp set. 

At first I was worried that the card was a little too dark fro Valentine's day but I when I gave it to my husband he really loved it, so I was really glad :)

I hope that you are having a great Saturday!!!
Thanks for stopping by,


Here is a link to the video where I share the Valentine's banner that I made :)
