Crafty Secret's DT Challenge and Linky Party!

Good morning!  It is the start of a brand new month, which means it is also time for Crafty Secret's DT Challenge and Linky Party!
The theme this month was to make a masculine themed card in honor of the upcoming Father's Day celebration.
I have to admit that masculine cards are not my forte! 
It's hard to justify glitter, bling, and doilies on a man's card! LOL!
I used a free printable that Sandy had offered awhile back. 
I added a few circles to emulate fish bubbles, with a scattering of sequins, and a bow. 
I don't know if adding ribbon is "allowed" on a man's card.....but in my world it is okay! ;)

I wanted my fish to be a bit shimmery (not glittery....just shimmery!) so I reached for my Wink of Stella pen.
I pulled out coordinating papers I printed from Crafty Secrets.

Added my "fish bubbles" and a bit of ribbon/twine.  I think adding the twine made it "legal" to add satin ribbon.  ;)

Be sure to head on over to the other design team member's blogs for more inspiration!
Have a great day!

Well, it's a very manly bow, Michele, so I think you are OK! LOL I love this card, and the fish bubbles and sequins are probably my favorite part! Thanks for making time to join us this month...I know you've had a doozy of a time! Your work is always so beautiful! xo

The guys is my life are both pretty masculine and they are good with ribbon and your sequins are also so discreet they would be fine with that as well. I know what you mean though, I never know how far to take it and that is the reason I don't feel comfortable making guys cards. This is really cute and that Wink of Stella would give the fish a perfect shimmer.

I love this card and the use of circles as bubbles! I think I need to know more about Wink of Stella! I've never heard of this and it makes it look great.
