Need for Speed {PP146}

Happy Sunday, peeps...I hope you're having a wonderful weekend!  Today, the incredibly talented Ann has a Clean-and-Simple challenge for us at The Paper Players...


a masculine Clean-and-Simple challenge!  This is a great challenge because, in my opinion, masculine cards should be fairly clean and simple.  Generally speaking, guys don't like a lot of fussy stuff on their cards so CAS is just perfect.  I had an idea of what I wanted to do and found the perfect sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch:

 And here's what I did with it:

So, this might not be as "clean" as a true CAS card but there's no way that 4x4 would make anything "clean", right?!  So I added a little dirt, mud and road splatter courtesy of my Color Spritzer, ink splatter stamp and some sponging. 
The Chevron embossing folder makes the perfect tire tracks and I thought the Basic Gray Washi Tape looked a bit like road stripes or maybe rumble strips!!  What do you think of that new color?  That's Smoky Slate making it's debut with the new catalog starting May 31st.  Isn't it pretty?  Oh, sorry this is a guy card....it's, um, handsome isn't it?!
I used it on the inside too...stamping the four wheeler from Need for Speed (retiring soon--get it before it's gone!) and adding some more "dirt" with the Color Spritzer (retiring soon too, geesh!).  But, what is not retiring is our awesome Design Team.  Check out their amazing masculine projects over at The Paper Players and then come join us!  Just be sure to link up before the challenge ends on Friday, May 24th at Noon (PDT).  Thanks for stopping by!
