ISMAKI Challenge 09-010

I made this card using the sketch by Isa Norris here on ISMAKI this week. This is yet another man card for a friend and as it is for a man I did not want to go overboard with the swirls bit but hope the ones on the postcard stamp make it a qualifier! I really like the effect of repeating the focal image on all three squares and will most definitely use this again. Thanks for the inspiration Isa.
I stamped the three printed paper squares with Royal & Langnickel stamps.........you know the ones I mentioned before that don't stick anymore & a lot of them have actually turned an opaque white colour?!........All the papers were printables on a free CD with Scrapbook Magazine by Daisy D's, I printed them ages ago and have only just got round to using them :)))

I'm the sort of crafter that craft companies must hate!! I need to save money wherever I can and digital papers are a great way to do that. You can find some really stylish designs nowadays. I even make my own up when I feel in the mood, which makes it even cheaper!
