All Squared Up

So I have finally summoned up enough courage to enter a card challenge. I have been browsing a few different sites for a while and getting lots of inspiration and I also like the idea of pushing myself to create something different from my normal work.  I have used the below sketch from the Avery Elle monthly challenge to create a birthday card for a very good friend of mine.

I recently bought the All Squared Up stamp set which is very different to anything else I own but I love it.  Here is what I came up with for the challenge:

I stamped the border stamp in Memento Tuxedo Black ink then used masks and Distress Inks to colour the different sections.  I used the same inks to created the matts so that all of the colours matched.

Thank you for taking a look, please leave a comment if you like my card!
