I used the following dies:

 I am sharing two versions of the same card with the lighting will have to tell me which you like better. I am one of the team members that also have a hard time with cards for men...I just love to add flowers to
I don't think the greenery counts, do you?
My paper is from Graphic 45 and the card stock is from Quickutz, and the ribbon is from my stash.
Do you like how I altered the frame and fence? On the fence I ran it through with my embossing plate, I use it for everything I want to have texture.
 Wanted to share a close up of the frame inked with Tim Holtz distress inks and also the texture on the fence and inks to bring out the texture.
 One last view of the front of my card.
A quick view of the inside just waiting for a sentiment when I need to give away.
I hope you join us this week, you still have a couple days to enter.
