Snow Leopard

     Today's card features another heat embossed, rubber stamped image from Sparkle n Sprinkle.  I've had this set longer than I care to admit and I've never used this particular stamp before.  I suppose it's a regular leopard but I decided that the black and white was beautiful and so he's now a "Snow Leopard."  Papertake Weekly has a "Take Your Pick" challenge theme this week and I chose the color theme -- White plus 1 color (mine is black.)


     Very, very CAS!  Just the heat embossed image (Black Detail DP also from Sparkle n Sprinkle), the sentiment, and three black square buttons strung on silver twine.  The embossing powder gives a great texture to the card.  I think it's a perfect masculine card for Father's Day.
