2B or not 2B.....

Inspired by The Male Room Challenge...Shakespeare 
to make today's card....
I had lots of ideas but went for maybe an obvious one...2B or not 2B
Sue from the DT was also inspired by this but went for a different idea, 
which was really fun and clever...
I have stamped and embossed, splattered, die cut, blended, layered
and used inca gold and lindys sprays to make the card.

I enjoy making masculine cards and was hoping to be considered 
for the DT call but I am away this week, until the end of the month 
so cannot make the second card, which is a requirement.
Hopefully next time xx
I had fun making the card and thank you for stopping by...

I was wrecking my brain over what to do for this challenge and nothing resurfaced...This is fantastic! Love the gold at the bottom of your back panel and the distressing on the note! But the best thing is your joke - I would have missed the Shakespeare hint on your card...so immensely clever! Now if this is not a winner...

I do not understand how this very beautiful card I escaped in May ...? When I saw her, I fell in love with her. Wonderful vintage look! Inka Gold on the black panel - an excellent idea. Long time I did not seen such a beautiful card.
