This is for a male teen in my church that is getting baptized. Is is masculine enough? Lose the ribbon? I brayered close to cocoa on glossy cs and then stamped ballet blue & white over it that's why everything is muted. TFL!

Stamps: Simply Said
Paper: Craft cs, Bordering blue cs, glossy cs
Ink: close to cocoa, ballet blue, white craft
Accessories: gel pen, ruler for strips on bb cs, brayer
I think it is beautiful but I would put hemp or twine instead of the ribbon and maybe burnish the edges with close to cocoa or you could even add some metal embellishments. But you can disregard all my suggestions because the card is great just the way it is.

so gorgeous! I love the dots under the faith... I think I'm gonna use that idea! actually I love everything about this card. I love the card the way it is... but it would be cool to see a version with metal embellishments and hemp.

Thanks for everyone's help and sharing your great ideas!
I should hv thought of hemp or twine (duh) too but I guess I was concentrating too hard on tying in the little bits of white ink. Gonna change it up a bit! TFS:)

I think it is lovely. You obviously carefully thought it out as to how you muted the colors, and it turned out beautifully. I have a teenage son, and I would agree to change the white ribbon. Your choice - hemp, twine, brad, button, hardware.....just something a little more manly in my opinion.
