Masculine Valentine?

When I started this card, my goal was to make a more masculine Valentine's Day card. I'm not sure I really accomplished that though. What do you think?

The card base is Chocolate Chip with a piece of Berry Bliss DSP at the top and Purely Pomegranate in the center. The stem from Always was stamped in Chocolate Chip at the bottom. For the focal image, I stamped the heart in Versamark and then Purely Pomegranate Classic Ink and then embossed it with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. It is matted on Chocolate Chip and Purely Pomegranate cardstock. The Chocolate Chip Taffeta Ribbon is knotted through the right edge of the image and adhered with Vintage Brads on the left side. I really wanted to add the "everything" definition from Define Your Life also, but I couldn't figure out a place to make it fit on this particular card. Maybe that will be my challenge for the next one.

Recipe:
Stamps: Always
Cardstock: Purely Pomegranate, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
DSP: Berry Bliss
Ink: Versamark, Purely Pomegranate, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Chocolate Chip Taffeta Ribbon, Vintage Brads
