OCC - Masculine Valentine plus MTSC59

Happy weekend everyone!!!

Today is the day of my *Garage Sale* wahooo.....I'm so glad this day is finally here. I'll keep you posted!!!

Onto the OCC Challenge.....It's an new month which means we have a new hostess. It's no other then the fabulous Linda Coughlin.

With Valentine not to far off....Linda is challenging us to create a *Masculine Valentine* card/project. Don't have a sweety....think about making a card for your brother, dad, uncle or a secret admirer *wink*!!!

My inspiration for this card came from this weeks IC218 - Erte. I chose this piece of Art - Heart II.  I also added the Belli Challenge #84 - Ribbons to my card. My card also fits this weeks C4C23 Challenge - wahoo!!!

Here is my card for my sweet hubby.....



I used my new SU *I (heart) Heart* Set. The bigger heart is inked Really Rust and the smaller one is Soft Sky. The sentiment is from the Wonderful Favorites Set. I matched it with the same colors and also added  Old Olive.

The BG was embossed with the cute Cuttlebug Love Language Folder. My finishing touches are the Ribbon and the sweet Heart Button.

Please stop by the OCC Blog to see all the awesome Samples.

*************************************

My next card is for my middle daughters friend. We are having a surprise party for her later this afternoon.

Since the birthday girl is a *girly girl*.......my Rebecca wanted me to ink up her new *Ruby* image from *The Greeting Farm*.

I used the MTSC59 Sketch for my layout. I also added the Belli Challenge # 84 - Ribbons to this card.


The image was inked in Memento Black and colored with Copic Markers. The sentiment is from the new Flourishes Taglines Set. My finishing touches are the piercing, the Red Satin Ribbon and the Silver Pearls.

Have a fabulous weekend and thank you for stopping by!!!
