And Here It is!!!

I used the waxed paper resist technique to create the background. This was my first time with this technique and it is so easy. (My mind is spinning on the possibilities of modifying this technique!)

Thank you all for your input (yup, ribbon is possible, isn't it, Leslie!) and thanks Paula for this layout. I love it!

And I want to try adding gold edging around another card sometime too Elizabeth. I have another masculine birthday card around the beginning of the year.

Thanks again!!!

That looks great! Great idea for the background. The finished card looks very stylish.

PS Other ways to do a waxed paper background are to use a fork to draw lines or to fold the waxed paper into a bullseye pattern.

Isn't it funny how we make old techniques new again. I love what you did.....makes me want to drag out the ole wax paper. Thanks for sharing. Love the card.
