MCT Manly Monday ~ wish big!

Howdy happy Monday to you!  Today is Manly Monday over at My Creative Time.  I never have enough of these so I'm always happy when I'm assigned to create one :)

As funny as this might sound, this card was inspired by my kitchen redo.  I have been stripping paint off my cabinet doors (30 of them) so I can repaint them (they were chipping and peeling).  As the paint was being stripped off I was left with wood grain doors, kind of like the "wood" rectangle.  

To create the "wood" box I taped off with post it tape and inked the wood stencil, then with a darker brown distress ink I add a bit of shading.  For the Sentiment Label die, I made it longer to fit my die cut sentiment.
