My Honey, Masculine Card, HMFMC186 Challenge Reminder

Hello again Crafty Friends.  Welcome back to my Blog!
I have another Masculine card to share that I've created for the Current Challenge # HMFMC186, over at HMFMC.  For all the details, check us out at House-Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge Blog found HERE. The theme was chosen by our talented Mousey Teamie, Pauline; "Make it Masculine".  Hope you'll join the fun as there is loads of inspiration from the amazing DT and fabulous Sponsored prizes! 

Here is my take;
I've used an HMD Gruffies stamp called "Bit of Honey" and combined it with a Fiskars "My Honey" sentiment stamp. Aren't these fun together for playing on words?  Might be good for a Birthday or even a Valentine's Day card, dont you think so? And who says that Masculine/Male/Boy/Guy themed cards can't have glitter too? (can you spy the glitter?)

Stamps: Stampabilities, House-Mouse Designs, Gruffies "Bit of Honey" , #KR1049", featuring Pebble. Fiskars Sentiment from "Beary Fun Ours" Simple Stick Stamp Set.
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, COPICS, Glitter-Gel Markers, Studio G Inks in greens and blues (for sponging).
Papers:  Making Memories Kids Collection - Ethan - DP, and White CS
Accessories:  Creative Expressions, Eternal Ring Striplet Die  and French Colection - Provence Die by Sue Wilson, MS textured Glitter, Ribbon
 Techniques:  Sponging, Layering, Paper Tole
