Paper Players 83

Happy Sunday and welcome back to another Paper Players challenge!  Today Anne Marie has chosen a CAS theme for us---masculine!
I have two little great-nephews, so I chose to make a “youthful” masculine birthday card:
I chose to use two bright primary colors, Real Red and Pacific Point, along with some retired DP and a current set, Delightful Dozen, which is a really great sentiment set!
I was also able to use a couple of fun punched borders that my sweet friend Linda made for me----she just happened to do one of each in the colors I chose, so I pieced them together to make one multi-colored one!  I also used the Freshly Made Sketch 22 from this week, too:
I hope you’ll use this Clean and Simple challenge to soup up  your stash of masculine cards!!!  Come play with us and share your creation over at the Paper Players blog!  And while you’re there, be sure to check out all the other goodies the designers have made! 
Reading time with Grampy!
Thanks for visiting today!


  1. Love the bright birthday card! The 1-2-3- border is adorable! And is that a sponge dauber I spy?? Must be Cassidy is going to sponge the edges of her pages to dress them up a bit :)

  2. I love your card! Its a great boy card for sure!!! Love all the numbers on the DSP and the border of numbers at the top!

  3. I was wondering if those were ones I sent you. Great idea to cut off the a b c. Love the card. Great idea! Love the Sketch.
    Nothing sweeter than a little girl and her grandpa reading. Love this!

  4. Super cute card! Love how you cut the "Happy Birthday" our of the stamp and mounted it - what a clever way to give it something a little extra!

  5. This is such a cute card with those number borders! Love it!!
