Quick Card

Hi folks - just a quick post for what turned out to be a very quick card - it is a long time since I have had a card come together this quickly.

I printed off the image which is one from Cora at Digital Two For Tuesday.
I was inspired by a challenge to make a white card with a feature of red, but this ended up with a wee bit too much black, but that is not a problem as I wanted a masculine card.  I was also following a Midnight Madness sketch challenge (#84)

To add some interest to the black layers I embossed them with the diamond plate folder, and added just a wee bit of bling

And volia, here is my card!!

Thanks for calling by, and may you day be blessed.

Diamond / hash mark impression plate here we come! To think we have been shopping for all weather (mud and snow) tires for nearly a month and this diamond impression idea never glimmered. Ah Haaa! Thanks for this A+ prompt, Maxine. Email me for a NZ chat. Thanks. mt23stamperatyahoo
So glad you shared this quick card. The design seems clever for an ATC from your nifty workplace.
Keep Looking UP!

Hello Maxine. I hope all is well with you my dear. I love Digital 2 for Tuesday. Awesome image and you selected the perfect texture for the background! I love that you added a little bling even though it's a male card.
Have a blessed weekend my dear!
