It was great fun creating this black and white background with one of the images from Deco Borders.  Love the dramatic and graphic print it created - perfect for a masculine card.  I added the sentiment and framed it with another image from the set and then added a pop of colour with the blue stars to keep the masculine theme going.  The sentiment was getting lost in the wash so I underlined it with black half pearls to draw your eye to it.
