Method Playground Challenge 53

Method Playground Challenge 53 is up, you can view all of the Design Team layouts here.

Challenge 53 revisited the first Method Playground challenge, which was to create a layout background using only cardstock. I interpreted this challenge strictly, meaning that I couldn't use the paint and ink I typically use to create a layout background.

Here is my take on the challenge:
The green lace cardstock was cut with my Cricut (Storybook cartridge) and laid off-center on the black cardstock under layer. The silver cardstock was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and then sanded for a brushed metal look on the raised areas.
