Welcome to another Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. Today's sketch said it was perfect for a masculine card and that's just what I needed to add to my birthday card stash. Most of my end of the year birthday cards are for the guys in my life. I also wanted to use colors I don't often use rather than the darker colors I seem to think are necessary for a guy card.
The little pocket, banners and strip across the card were all cut from the same piece of patterned paper. I just picked the colors I wanted to use and cut from there. And, yes, there are hearts on my masculine card. You do know that guys like hearts, too, right? The heart with the linen thread bow was cut from a scrap watercolor paper I had left over from another project. It's hard to see but in the left banner there is just a wee bit of blue and it kinda sorta matches the blue in the heart.
