Masculine Monday #50

This card was originally going to be just the sneakers and the sentiment on
a one layer card but...

I decided I wanted to add a little something.
With absolutely no plan in mind except the color scheme of black, red and 
white I grabbed some patterened papers from the pile of dsp on my desk. 
I thought 'I'll just put a strip down the side and that'll be that', but...

I put it on crooked so I tried to straighten it out with a little strip of 
card stock but...

That didn't work so I tried to cut the edge to make it straight but...

I think you get where this is going...

That didn't work either so I used a die cut to save the image and the 
sentiment and that's when I had the idea to put it into a frame using 
some patterned paper and card stock. As I was cutting out the frame piece
I decided to cut out a section of it and pop that up for some diension.

This card is not what I originally had in mind but I love where it ended up.
Sometimes crafting without a plan can be so much fun!
