Manly Card?!?!...

I am working on a new idea where I need lots of manly cards. I will let you know more about it when I have more details, but in the mean time I need a manly Valentines card. Does this work? I think it needs something, but I don't know what to add without making it girly again. I tried to stick with neutral colors...yes, to me Chocolate Chip is neutral...I swear I used it every day, probably as much as Whisper White, if not more. :) I stamped both of the hearts in Chocolate Chip craft ink and then embossed them with clear embossing powder.
Anyway, what do you think?

What I used:
Stamps: Love You Much
Ink: Chocolate Chip Craft and Classic Ink
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Kraft
Accessories: Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Sponge Dauber (for antiquing edges), Chocolate Chip 1" Double Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals

I think this is a GREAT card! Kristine is here too and she likes it lots as well. :) A thought to make it a bit more manly.....instead of tying the ribbon in a knot....just wrap it around and have the ribbon overlap on the left side....then add 2 brads on the left hand side. Just a thought. :) I LOVE it thought and want to make one myself. :)

What a great card. I know my husband would like it! I am sure red gets old for the guys. And, yes, chocolate chip is a neutral. I like the say that brown (aka. chocolate chip) is the new black. :)
