Masculine ribbon?

I like challenging myself in mini creative ways, so last night my task was to make a masculine card that had two different ribbons on it. I think I suceeded! The image stamp is from PaperBag Studios, and is stamped with Ranger archival black on glossy white CS. The ribbon is SU! and the CS is Bazzill. I added three copper eyelets, some piercing and distressed the edges of the black CS to liven it up a bit.
I'm going to save this for when I need a male retirement card.
In other news, I told you I had a secret, right? Well, let it be known today that I am officially a member of the Gallery Design Team for Verve Visual! *jumping up and down* Can you believe it? Oh, and wait until you hear who the mastermind behind this fantastic new company is! None other than...oh shucks, that's right, I can't tell you yet... bummer. Anyway, I am so honored to be asked to be a member of the Verve. Talk about a shock to receive THAT email! And wait until you see the incredible new stamps coming! *drool* They are perfect. Excited? I sure am. *grin*
