Masculine Valentine's Inspiration

Happy Monday crafty friends!  It's my day to share my project with you on the Cheery Lynn Designs blog.

I thought I would challenge myself to create a masculine Valentine's card without including a heart in the design. Here's what I came up with:

"Always" (A2 size card)

I started with the Fiona's Magic Mirror frame, then added in a Rectangle Horizon Boutique Stacker Frame in red, some Chicken Wire which I cut into my own shape and layered on. 

The hinges are cut from a scrap piece of cereal box chipboard.  I then inked them with some dark brown chalk ink and then added a bit of Viva Decor Paint in copper with a pin to each of the nail holes. You can also punch these pieces out, but I left them in place for texture.

On the upper left you'll see some Wheat Heads and a Tiny Fanciful Flourish, on the bottom right, two Miniature Roses with Olive Branches beneath.
