"Love you to the stars and back" is what is written on the BP; it says it all, so it doesn't need a sentiment.  The BP has stars diecut (partial cut)  from it to show the ivory base card through with Wink of Stella.  The image is coloured with distress inks, firstly smooshed, then painted in, then splattered over a mask. Scraps of coordinating papers and a sunshine diecut in black card to finish.
I reckon this is a card a guy could give someone without feeling it was overly sentimental, but still has the message.

BP: Dear Lizzy
Image: From the Heart Stamps (new)
Star die: Memory Box Starry night background die (new)
Sun die: Dienamics

Sorry, I didn't make the "black/white/one colour twist", but it needed two colours!   It did make the sketch though.
