The sketch put me in mind of a color-blocked card so that pretty much the direction I took - or at least I started in! I took a piece of Berrylicious cardstock and the Geometric Grid stencil and sponged over it with Audrey Blue ink. Once that was finished, it still looked flat to me, so I moved the stencil slightly and added some Apple Green ink over the top. Much better!
The white panel is a woodgrain cardstock that I die-cut with a Stitched Scallop Edge die. I stamped the sentiment several times to get a good impression and then adhered the panel along with the stenciled piece to a white top-fold card base. After a lot of to-ing and fro-ing about what to put down the right hand side (I started with lime gingham paper, then went to black cardstock, then to Berrylicious and finally to the black & white striped paper) I added the stacked "because" and at last finished the card!
No embellishments because this card would suit a male or female equally.
