Gardening

A masculine card with a gardening theme today. I don't usually put flowers on cards for men, but as this is a gardening theme and I've kept the colours to black and white, I thought the subtle addition of flowers would be appropriate.  I decided to used striped paper to keep a masculine look.
I used a Little Claire silhouette digi stamp for the main image and the papers are from a Dovecraft Paper Stack.  I finished off my card with a punched flower and black Card Candi.

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:

  15. The flower on this masculine card looks quite perfect I think. Love this silhouette, and your combination of the patterned papers. Done so well, with the stripes & floral border. That would be tricky to get 'right', but you certainly did. It's a wonderful card, that any fella would be tickled to receive. TFS & Hugs

  19. I think this is a great male card and the flower is fine, especially since it is part of the theme and black and white. Your choice of papers just adds to the male theme.
