 This month I created a card for my hubby who just completed his first Half-Ironman distance.  Jack is the perfect masculine paper.
I used the Jack pocket scrapbooking cards.
I cut these apart…Creating lots of options for my card.
I chose the all black with woodgrain pattern to be the background …
Then I really liked the Ruby Red card …
I knew I didn’t want the sentiment showing so I popped on a piece of white to use for the sentiment I wanted.  The paper looked crooked because I am trying the layers together before I permanently adhere them.
Finish card is complete with a sentiment from a retired stamp set, Whisper thick twine and stickers from the Jack Complements.
