2nd post - challenge entry!

Hi folks,

Just a quickie as I've decided that challenge entries deserve a post of their own and this is another entry for the Simply Less Is More "Masculine" themed challenge . . .



Materials used:
  • 12.5cm square white card and envelope
  • 11.5cm panel of black card
  • 11cm panel of white card distressed using pumice stone distress ink
  • Art Impressions image and TPC Studio sentiment, both inked in Ranger Archival jet black directly on to white panel.
  • Two black faux pearls to finish

Hope you like it - I am LOVING these Clean And Simple cards - they are SOOOOOOOO great for guy cards, aren't they?
