Male flowers?

Hi Everyone, the challenge over at The Male Room is to "Make Flowers Masculine".

My DT card was to make for a friend of ours, so a great opportunity to do a card for him with flowers! He doesn't garden so didn't want to use that theme. My first thoughts? I chose a sketch to follow, then for the papers. I searched for flowers in my files and this beauty came up. Then realised it was all in a blog hop, so used the papers from the hop.

I made the clock in PS with PS shapes, I cut it out on the Cameo twice, removing the circle for the top layer, the 75 was also cut on the Cameo, I then die cut some small flowers to add "wood carving" to the clock face and to place in the corners. I added a spot of Uniball gold pen to the flowers and covered the 75 with the pen too. I edged the papers with my markers. The sentiment is mine. I hope I have fulfilled the brief.
