Make it Monday # 261 Papertrey Ink

The challenge this Monday was to use a floral to make a masculine card. It seemed to me that the answer was to pick the right flowers and to “pretty” it down a bit.  So just like you tend to picture a man with a German Shepherd  and not a Pekingese, I pictured flowers that were more stylistic and graphic than fussy.  I decided to “pretty” it down by making the flower centers out of gears.  Voila!
