Let's Try Something Different

I bought some packs of Kraft card blanks at a recent craft event.  I thought they would make a change from the usual white and cream, especially for a more mature (very PC), masculine card.  I also purchased a selection of Imagination Craft's Sparkle Medium texture paste so I decided to combine the two: Why not?
I stamped over the card with Crafty Individuals' CI- 017 script stamp and Pumice Stone DI, then over stamped a few random sections with one line of the stamp using Black Soot DI. 

The main image is CI-295, stamped onto brown parcel paper with black heat embossing powder.  Once this was stuck onto the card, I used the Sparkle Medium in Gunmetal and Imagination Craft's diamond stencil to create the partial border.  Not too blingy, but enough to lift the card and still maintain an understated effect.

I'm entering this into:
