I've used my favourite set for this card - Round in Circles - as I think geometric always works for a masculine card. I had a die cut left over from my The Male Room - TMR#61 challenge on my desk and it works perfectly with the circle stamps. I created my own background paper using the small open circles and an ombre ink pad. I adhered the die cut and then cut away the excess. I attached it flat to the front of a card. I used the distressed circles to create another piece of paper and stamped the word thanks on top and embossed it with clear powder. I then very carefully fussy cut it out and adhered the word to a panel of black card which I shaped to make a banner. I based the layout on this week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches - FMS#290. On the inside I cut a mat layer of aqua card and finished the sentiment on the white panel.
