and now for a dual challenge...

This card combines two more challenges, which I found very fitting for a masculine card so this is my take on combining the challenges. 

Colour Q and CPS (sketch challenges) are a great way to get those creative juices flowing.

I've made a grungy background on So Saffron by inking up the Wonderfully Worn and Sanded background stamps in all the different colours (except white) and just stamped in a slightly different spot each layer to make this background, which I think is very effective.  I've used my old faithful photo corners which haven't seen much action of late to do the angled corners and stamped the sentiment directly on the background, it's inked up in all the colours as well.  White just seemed out of place for me on this card so I chose not to use it.

I've used the level 2 hostess set Cute by the Inch for the little squares of Cajun Craze on So Saffron, roughed up the edges with my fingernail and sponged Always Artichoke on them.

Hope you like it.
