Midnight Madness Man Card

Tomorrow is my husband's birthday! Happy Birthday, Honey! I made this to give to him using the Midnight Madness sketch today. I love this To the Nines designer paper for masculine cards! I pulled the colors from that to create this card. I inked up the embossing folder with Sahara Sand before embossing, such a cool outcome! Then, I stamped the images with versamark and heat embossed them with Tim Holtz' vintage embossing powder. Then rubbed it with my finger to help give it that vintage look. I then sponged with Close to Cocoa, Sage Shadow and Always Artichoke. Oh, and I used my distressing tool on the Sahara Sand layer too. Anyway, I thank you for coming by for a visit today! Off to do some errands now!
