Limelight #66: sketch w/red

Made a card today for the Limelight Papercrafts sketch Challenge #66 using RED.  I checked my calendar to see the upcoming birthdays and noticed there are several male b-days coming up in the family so that set the tone.  Once again, I've used a star on a male card.  I had all the parts mostly done and then set it aside to fold some laundry and then it came to me...
WIRE!  I love when that happens.
You step away from a project for a bit and sometimes an idea just pops in your mind. 
Cool.  So, I dug out the MM wire that I've had for 10 yrs and played. 
Here's the result:

Here's what the original frame sticker looked like. 
I cut the middle out with a craft knife and replaced it with the BG paper. 

Here's the Sketch:

Paper: BG "Oliver"
Ink: Stazon and Faded Jeans Distress
Star: Use "George" cart and cut it at 2 1/2" three times for depth
Misc: floss, Recollections glittered frame, MM wire 

Thanks for coming by.

I have a place in my heart for plaid patterns and polka dots. I think you know already that I love this card. Such a clever idea to add some patterned paper to that frame. Your card is gorgeous!
