Grungy Masculine Valentine

One difference between cats and dogs!!! lol...

Hi, Friends........

I am here with another masculine valentine using the MFT Sketch for the week.  My recipe of dark colors + clean lines + texture makes cards for the male of the species easy!

This one has a grungy look that I also love putting into "guy cards". Again, it has no actual red in it, but substitutes a warm maroon instead.

Supplies used include:
Sizzix - Thinlits TH Mixed Media die set
Darice - Nesting Hearts die set
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
Distress Ink in Walnut Stain for edges
Patterned paper scraps from stash

Quick post here so I can get this linked up!!! Be back soon with another. Thank you for stopping by.
