OCCC Masculine Valentine's Day Card

Hello! This weekend at Our Creative Corner, the challenge is to make a masculine valentine's card. Talk about a challenge! My husband is not a "card guy" He supports my habit - err I mean hobby,  but isnt really interested in the card itself. And to top it off, Valentine's day just happens to be my husband's birthday, (I know, how sweet, right?) So I always want to focus on his birthday vs the "holiday" itself. Either way, he isnt all that interested in Birthday cards or Valentine's day cards, so, despite that, I thought of him as I made this card. I used the sketch challenge at Card Patterns for inspiration along with my husband and the OCC theme. Thanks for stopping by today! I would love to hear what you think!

Stamps: Laundry Notes (su) Teeny Tiny Wishes (su)
Paper: Soft Suede textured, Throughly Modern dsp, Very Vanilla
Ink: Soft Suede, Rose Red, Basic Black

Ahhh, Jason is going to love this even if he isn't a 'card guy'. I love how you used the layout and those Nesties really set it off. You know that set is one of my favorites ;D
