Loons for Queen Susie

The Queen for the Day this week is Susie (aka susie australia).  She hasn't been posting cards on SCS for long, but there were several beautiful cards in her gallery that caught my eye.  This is the card I ended up going with.

This is what I came up with.

I pretty much kept the layout but used cardstock strips instead of decorative paper.

Cuttlebug Mania has challenged us to use Black and White.  

You can use any manual (not electric) die-cutting/embossing machine,
dies or embossing folders to enter our challenges. 
Please tell us what products you've used in your post!!!
  This weeks prize comes from

I used my Big Shot with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder (SU), Window Frames Framelits (SU), Circle Nesties (Spellbinders)

Paper Players is hosted by my friend LeAnne this week.

Seize the Birthday is up with a new gallery of anything as long as it's a birthday card.

So masculine and just a wonderful card. The woodgrain looks great. Of course, I really like those loons, too.
