Krafty Chicks challenge #718 - ATG

Good morning friends; it's Thursday so that means it's time for a new challenge over at Krafty Chicks challenge.  As it's a 5 week month our theme this week is Anything Goes, so you can create whatever you like.  
It was my brother-in-law's birthday last week so needed a masculine card for my boys to give him.  I went graphic and bold for my card.  I hope you like it.
Here is my card:
A closer look at the stamping:
I decorated the inside:
Once I had decided on my products, I think this was one of the fastest cards I have ever made!!  I began by stamping the background in black ink onto a white card panel.  It is a small background stamp so I turned it sideways and stamped it twice to make a complete background for my panel.  I cut the width of my panel slightly smaller so that I could add a strip of light green card down the left hand side and the whole panel was added to the card base with double sided tape.  I used 3 separate stamp sets to create my sentiment but as they were all the same font they look like they were meant to be together.  I stamped the sentiment in black ink and cut it with a stitched die and matted it onto a piece of the light green card.  This was added onto the card with foam squares.  I found some enamel dots (trying to use up some older stuff) in almost the exact same colour green so added a few around the sentiment.  For the inside I cut a white panel and stamped the background stamp at the bottom and added a strip of green card to add a decorative edge.  I stamped the sentiment in the centre of the panel in black ink.  I added the panel to the card base with double sided tape.  A really simple card but quite striking and although not my usual colour scheme I think it works.  

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Classic Design challenge - ATG optional masculine

Wow, such a particularly masculine card. This is a wonderful idea to create a card. You have really created a work of art. I love this black and coastal cabana color scheme. It looks very beautiful. Thank you for your suggestion and I am happy that you are showing your card in the current Everybody Art Challenge. Thank you for participating.

What a fabulous masculine card Denise! I love how you used the background stamp twice to fill the space and paired it with pops of colour using card and enamel dots. Thank you for coming to play at Tic Tac Toe with us :) Vicky x
