Today I'm playing along at Freshly Made Sketches. I really liked the sketch, but turned for a landscape card. My uncle is a graphic artist and he gave me a 4" stack of 11 x 17" discontinued cardstock - that will make a LOT of cards. I need to send him an appropriate thank you card. I wanted the card to be masculine and use the paper from the stack. I started with some really cool black striped embossed paper. Since is both elegant and graphically bold, I decided to mirror that in my sentiment. The cursive "thank" is a a nod to the elegant and the "U" a nod to the bold. I layered it up and added the "U" with dimensionals for a little interest.
