less is more week 7 ...masculine


Well not wanting to risk another disaster like last week I thought I would get in early ...lol
The dreaded masculine card eh? Think I must be odd cos I actually quite enjoy making mens cards. Maybe that's because I am naturally drawn to unfussy things ??


 Do you know I can't remember the last time I made a DL card...I must try harder to stick to my new years resolution and try not to make square cards all the time!!
The patterned paper is just one of the many papers from this set called boy trendz 
The sentiment was computer generated using bookworm font

I would also like to enter this into
challenge 58 of totally papercrafts which is add buttons
