CPS #184 Challenge Entry by Sabrina

This is the CPS #184 sketch, which, again, I happen to have a recent posting (Aug. 31) that I can apply to this challenge sketch. I do, however, plan on completing another just for this sketch (and hopefully I'll be able to get to it).

The card I'm submitting is square and can be used as a masculine congrats card. It is a simple card where the paper and the design play the major role, but the cutting out of the flourish took care and time. The  flourish is from  s.e.i's Bridgeport clear stamps. I then took my favorite VersaFine Vintage Sepia ink and distressed it. It reminds me of some of the hand carved flourishes found on antique handcrafted furniture, and very befitting a man - don't you think? Copper brads are in the four corners, and smaller ones on either side of the popped-up sentiment.

Since it has been a while since I've been able to participate in a challenge I feel driven to try more, so my challenge hunt continues.
