Do you ever need a male type card to say thank you? Well I think today's card might fit the bill. I used the colours from Color Throwdown and the layout from The Male Room.
I loved the inspiration colour photo so much and couldn't wait to get started, but then hit a bit of a what shall I do block. The vertical strip from the sketch was my starting point and then I just sort of experimented and added layers to the sunburst.
I was going to have the whole card background grey, but then trimmed it down and mounted it onto white cardstock and felt it looked so much more balanced. So from some shaky beginnings I think I ended up with quite a classy looking card. Just goes to show a little playing is worth the effort!
