I love, love, LOVE these colors together. I am glad that Pool Party has been introduced as one of the core colors in the Stampin' Up! family so I can continue to use it with this combination. It is not one I probably would have come up with on my own. Thank goodness for challenges! :)
Countryside is a great masculine stamp and I REALLY hope they don't retire it yet! It is one of those stamps that looks great colored in OR just stamped plain, I think. Which is good for me because I am not a big fan of coloring. lol I also used Clockworks down at the bottom for some extra texture on the card base. I know banners are really hot right now and they are perfect for a masculine card because they don't have to look too girly so that is why I added the strip of three. I did add a little bit of ribbon inside the button, which might be a little girly but hopefully not too much!
