Is this Dirty enough????

Are you wondering where I am going with this???? LOL!!!!

I was just wondering if this is "dirty" enough to give to my hubby for our anniversary? Today's color challenge was pretty in pink, whisper white, and soft suede.....I don't know why but the stamp set Always just jumped into my head. So I went to see what the MOJO sketch is this week....and I immediately thought of exchanging the one circle for 2 hearts. hmmmm......

Here is the original sketch:
Everyone that attends my classes, camps or clubs knows I like to "dirty" things up a bit.....aka - sponge the edges with a shade of brown.....get it?? dirty??? sponge???? I know, lame :) hehe!!

I sponged all edges with creamy caramel and then soft suede to give it a bit more dimension.

I started with a card base of pretty in pink. The main panel is whisper white. I stamped it with sanded background that had been stamped off in creamy caramel. The bird was stamped in soft suede that was stamped off twice. I embossed the hearts with versamark and white embossing powder and then sponged spots of them to deepen them a little. The sentiments are stamped in soft suede. The always sentiment has a berry branch stamped in the background with pretty in pink. I punched it with the 1 1/4 inch circle punch. Matted that with the 1 3/8 inch circle and then the scallop circle punch. I wrapped the soft suede polka dot grosgrain ribbon around and tied it in a knot and then used kraft taffeta ribbon below it.

Wanna see the hearts a bit closer? If not....scroll down really fast! lol!

There is lots of dimension here:
What do you think? My hubby is NO way a pink frilly guy...but I think I can get away with this....what do you think?
