Dude, You Rock

This is my take on this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge.

 CFC28: Create a Clean And Simple Tag or a project that has a tag on it.

I built my card around a tag that was attached to a pair of pants I bought for my sons a while ago. When I removed the tag from the pants, I thought to save it to use on a project some day.  When I saw this week's challenge, I started thinking about how I could use that tag I had stuffed in my box of bits & pieces.  SU's Extreme Skateboard image came to mind to go along with my tag, and I was on my way.

I  embossed most of the Kraft base with PTI's Woodgrain IP and brayered it with Crumb Cake ink.  I left just enough smooth space on the bottom for the sentiment .  The tag had a little red on it that ended up being covered by the skater image, so I decided to use red behind my SU Extreme Skateboard skater dude for some pop.  I was not happy with the blank space at the bottom of the tag, so I used PTI's Faux Ribbon and  added those red lines.  I think that was the perfect touch.  I like the way it came out and now I have a good man-card waiting in the wings.

Stamps~PTI Faux Ribbon, Modern Wood Mats and Signature Greetings, SU Extreme Skateboard.
Ink~Crumb Cake, PTI Pure Poppy.
Paper~Kraft, White, Riding Hood Red.
Accessories-PTI Mat Stack 1 & Layerz Mat Stack 1, PTI Woodgrain IP, Dimensionals, brayer, corner rounder, distressing tool.

Thank you for stopping in. Have a wonderful day!
