Masculine Baroque Birthday

I had a masculine themed birthday card to make...yes, I have a real problem with masculine cards since I can't 'girly' them all up with pretty ribbon, embellies and bling! Anyway, I thought why not use lots of copper brads and some manly' colours and who said I can't do a bit of paper piercing! Not me! lol :) I'm thinking perhaps the Baroque flowers aren't quite what I was looking for, but I kinda like the medallion with the copper cardstock layer in the background.

I'm sure a certain man in my life will see this post, so if you do, Here's to you, Jim! Happy Birthday! Luv ya! :)

I'm going to borrow that layout for a man card for my stamp club next week. I'll be sure to case the layout back to you.

This works great as a masculine card. It is very difficult to make something for a guy. They don't have too much out there now do they???
Thanks so much for sharing.
