Amazing ....

.... Hello!  I'm back with a card that I made on Saturday night.  This one is for a couple of challenges:

Stamps: MFT - Border It Mod Borders, CS Success, Bold Statements
Inks: Stampin Up! - Smoky Slate, Island Indigo; Versafine - Onyx Black
Dies: Die-namics - Triangle Screen
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Tempting Turquoise, Basic Grey; SU DP - Island Indigo

I think this week's MFT sketch is super and seems, to me, to be perfect for a guy card.  I used the colours from the new challenge Colour Me - so glad to join in on the first week too.

I decided to go for a very graphic look.  I cut a panel of design paper in Island Indigo and overlaid this with the triangle panel.  I cut a strip white card, stamped grey triangles and a very bold statement in black, and layered on a strip of Island Indigo card.  The inside has a mat layer of grey card and white panel with a simple inspirational sentiment.

I left lots of white space for me to write a message.  This is one of my cards for Ben - this year I intend to send him one card a week, just to let him know that I'm thinking of him.  I do miss having him with us, but this helps!

That's all for now - be safe!
