Johnny Appleseed

Okay, so Johnny Appleseed may not be this little HouseMouse's name, but that's what he reminds me of, so I'm sticking to it!!   I find masculine cards are tough to do, since my fingers just itch to add flowers, flourishes, gems, and glitz!!    But, I just tell myself to leave it alone and let it go at that . . . I settled for diecuts and candi-dots and patterned papers instead.
I would like to enter these challenges:

House Mouse - make it masculine
Crafty Sentiments - for a man
Cute Card Thursday - just for laughs
Dream Valley - AG
Eureka Stamps - the color red
Gruffies and Guests - AG
Love to Create - color inspired
Not Just Cards - AG
Papertake Weekly - use 3 shapes (square, rectangle, circles)
Whoopsi Daisy - AG
