Masculine Valentine

I just love doing all those frilly, lacy Valentines with flowers and gems, but I have to admit making a masculine one is a real challenge for me. But I needed a few so here is what I came up with for the Basic Grey Challenge #61. I used  Basic Grey papers from my Oxford pad, which is full of fabulous papers so fitting for some classic men cards. I loved this diagonal plaid and always think those large grommets have a manly look too. I used 3 papers from that BG pad. I diecut the hearts with my spellbinder hearts, and made the zigzag border with a Martha Stewart punch. I tried using black ink first on the hearts, but it is not so easily seen, so I added the white inked "I love you!"
