Here is my card:

I used this opportunity to make a masculine card, something I often struggle with and never have enough of in my stash.  As such, I kept the layout pretty simple and didn't add too many embellishments.  My card base and mats are SU Bordering Blue and the patterned papers are from the Basic Grey Oxford 6x6 pad.  The fun image is Miguel The Photographer from Guylou's Inimitability.  I printed him on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored him with my Copics. The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A few neutral pearls finished my simple card.

Here is a close-up of the image:
