Watercooler Wednesday Challenge - WWC132 - Marsha's Masculine 'Anything Goes'

Here we are again at another challenge for Watercooler Wednesday and its Marsha's Masculine 'Anything Goes'.  I have to admit I don't have any masculine type stamps - I used to use Wetlands but since it retired  I haven't really purchased any SU stamps with a masculine theme.  What I quite like doing though is thinking a bit outside of the box and using other stamps and papers to bring a masculine feel.

My card today uses some of the new Designer Series Paper called Coffee Break from the Coffee Suite - oh my if you haven't seen these papers yet you are missing a real treat.  They are so gorgeous - here you see both sides of the one sheet - and I just love those blues.  I've made a small envelope using the Envelope Punch Board to add to the front of the card and added the little note with the sentiments both coming from Best Birds.

I've added a touch of our new gorgeous ribbons - this one is Classic Weave ribbon in Crumb Cake.  I added a small enamel shape - a heart - that still keeps the card masculine right?

I hope you come and join us at Watercooler Wednesday challenge this week - do pop and visit the rest of the Design Team and leave us a comment - we love to hear from you.  Just click on the Watercooler Logo at the top of the page to play along.

Great card for the masculine challenge this week Fiona. I really like that paper especially the blue pattern paired up with the darker card stock. The little pocket with the sentiment is a nice touch too. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you sometimes we forget about just using papers and how good they can look
