Paper Smooches "Picture Perfect" challenge

I ordered some new Paper Smooches stamps on Friday and they arrived just in time for me to play along with this week's challenge @ Paper Smooches SPARKS!    Here's the inspiration photo for this week's challenge: 
I was inspired by the neutral color scheme and the angled lines.  Here's my card, using the Chart Toppers, Notebook Paper, and Clipboard stamp sets and the coordinating dies for Notebook Paper and Clipboard.   I think this will work well for a "guy" card, which are sometimes the hardest ones to create.  I embossed the black cardstock background, and added some gold bead "bullet points" to create a little extra dimension and texture.  The top portion of the clipboard is popped up with two layers of adhesive foam squares, so it has dimension like an actual clipboard.

What a great idea to use the clipboard die, and I love the different sentiments. What a sweet card! Thanks for joining us at this week's SPARKS Challenge!
