I tried to make a masculine get well card for my BIL.
Hope this is masculine with all the blues, and no flowers! I did end up putting ribbon on it. This is also for Rox's sketch challenge today and Pam's button time challenge! Somehow, I always think buttons as an embellishment look more masculine than other embellishments. What do you think?

Aw, he certainly looks under the weather! I am sure he'll cheer your brother up. I know my DH thinks any ribbon at all instantly moves a card out of the masculine zone, but personally I don't agree with him, I'd certainly consider this a guy card.

If it makes him smile then the card has served it's purpose. I think he's really going to enjoy your card. It's so light & fun! I love how you used the ribbon & button accent. Great embellishment! I really like all the blues, the DPs and scalloped edges. It's a great "get well" no matter what the gender! Hugs, Trish
