Using lace on a masculine card?

I am not a CAS kind of girl! I love my embellishments and lots of them. But sometimes that is challenging on a masculine card. My project for today uses Sparky the Knight from Digital Delights - not exactly the type of image that should be girly. But by keeping my textures kind of rough and tough, I was still able to use some typically feminine accessories, such as crocheted lace and a flower. For my ribbon treatment, I layered 2 crocheted ribbons, 5/8" Ivory Crocheted Ribbon and 1.5" Brown crocheted ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon to achieve the look I was going for. I made my flower from an old pair of Levi's.
