Masked Center Challenge on MFP

Yikes!  Another challenge deadline!  The card on the left is for another MFP tutorial challenge by Pat Garvin called Masked Center.  It's an interesting technique and I didn't think it needed any more bells and whistles.  Every time I reached for ribbon or another type of embellishment, I put it back.  I like it just the way it is.  Unfortunately, it is storming here and the best background paper is over in the studio.
The card on the right is a variation of the Masked Center technique.  I left the card stock mask on the card.  It reminded me of wood planks and I just kept sponging and left it on.  So maybe I could call it something like "sponged planks" and create a new technique myself.  I couldn't get my Versa Mark to do what I wanted it to.  My pad must need to be reinked so the background is too subtle to be seen in the photo.
