Close to my Heart Thursday - I Love You Card

I know that it is a few days past Thursday but I still wanted to share a fun project with you.  One of the things that I love about being a Close to my Heart Independent Consultant is sharing the fabulous products they make with you while by creating great things for the ones that I love.  Today I wanted to make something for my wonderful husband.

Have you ever looked at a piece (or a package) of paper and realize that you really want to use it, but that it just doesn't fit the theme of your project?  Today I take a beautiful and feminine paper pack and pull papers from it to create a masculine card.  Even a hint of flowers here and there can work for the men in your life and I think this card demonstrates that perfectly.  By using bold embellishments with small bits of the the floral pattern, a neutral or masculine card was created.  I was even able to pull in one of my favorite things - watercolors.
