Not Just a Year Older Paper Players CAS Masculine Birthday Card # 168

 October 21, 2013

I am trying to catch up on all my challenges this week in one day.  I absolutely LOVE The Paper Players Masculine Birthday Card Challenge this week.  I really like to make cards for men.   I  adore houndstooth, argyle and herringbone on guys.  It's kind of funny because I love polka dots and bows, too.   It doesn't seem to go together, does it?
