Golden Oldies Spectrum Noir Challenge

I made this card for the Spectrum Noir Masculine Challenge.  I know I find creating masculine cards a bit harder than female cards & I found this one even more challenging because it's not a pop-up card!  I know me creating a regular card, crazy right? (Insert lots of laughter).  I've also challenged myself to use up some papers I've had for a while & I even had enough to make another card - yes that one IS a Pop It Up and will be posted later in the week.
This card is 5 x 5 cut from River Rock card stock.  My image is from a retired Stampin Up set called Golden Oldies & I've colored him with Spectrum Noir Markers, then fussy cut him & poped him up with Dimensionals.  I've used Karen Burniston's Pop It Ups designed for Elizabeth Crafts Square with Circle Frame Edges to make the striped frame around my card, I even got out my sewing machine to stitch those zig-zags.  My sewing skills were downgraded when I tried to sew the circle ooopps it slipped & the next thing you know it's all crooked.  To cut the circles, I used the Accordian Circle die.  I stamped the sentiment onto Whisper White & used the LG & XL Oval Punches to punch those out.

For the inside I used a sentiment from Riley & Co called Old & Senile - funny right?  I think the sentiment goes perfect with the image, I love it when that happens.

Happy Stamping,
