You're my TYPE of friend!

The February promotions at Close to My Heart end today, before which I'd like to share a card that I made out from the promotion set:

Inspired by the challenge at Always Playing with Paper, I wanted to make a masculine card.  To match with the theme of travelling I have used the Regatta paper packet which has a nautical theme. Do you see the tone-on-tone waves in the blue background paper?

I can't really explain why I used that floral patterned paper on a masculine card.  It was definitely something outside of my comfort zone but I'm glad I did it!  The floral pattern is not too over-powering and I like that some red complements with the dark blue background nicely.

The Stamp of the Month promotion also ends today.  Snatch it before it's gone!
