This is sort of Masculine, Right?

As this post goes live I will be on my way to Antigua for a little Rest and Relaxation. Prior to leaving I was on a crazy creative MOJO Streak so I hope that you will continue to visit. This will be the perfect time to catch up on posting items that I've not had the time to share.

Today's card features another new line of stamps being sold at ABC Toys & Crafts. new Rachell Anne Miller Stamp Set ( CAKES are YUMMY ). The coloring and paper piecing possibilities are endless. Ordinarily I wouldn't look at this stamp set and think masculine, however, I am thinking that the color combo and the lack of buttons, bows or ribbon, this could definately pass for MASCULINE!!! (so I used a one of the frilly Circle Die and the cake plate is pink, I suppose this is as masculine as I could muster)

What do you think??

Have a fabulous and relaxing vacay.. I think this card is simply gorgeous.. maybe more androgynous than masculine.. it can go either way, depending on the elements. But for certain, it is really beautiful!
