MCT Manly Monday ~ celebrate u!

Happy Monday to U!  Today is Manly Monday over at My Creative Time!  Sometimes I have trouble creating masculine cards, so I'm always happy when I'm on the schedule for Manly Monday.  It forces me to do it :)
Now I have to admit that I had this great card planned in my head...and then I started to create it...then the crickets started chirping.  I put it all together and was NOT happy with it...boring and flat.

I just stared at it I knew it needed texture but embossing folders were out of the question since I had it all glued together.  You just can't start adding bows, buttons, and sequins to a "man" card :) 
 Then it hit me...GLOSSY ACCENTS!  It's amazing how little dots of glossy accents brought this card to life.  
If you look closely you can see where I added the slash embossing between the "u" and the footballs.  I added a "U" die to complete the "celebrate U" sentiment.

Glossy Accents to the rescue! It did add a lot to your card...clever idea! I like your background and offset also. Nice card design.
