Happy Sunday, peeps! It’s time for another Paper Players challenge and our hostess Jaydee has a fun one!

Finally, I added a faux button and some Bermuda Bay baker’s twine for some interest .And since this uses stripes and dots, I am entering it in The Male Room’s Stripes and Spots challenge this week as well! Hope that little bow of baker’s twine doesn’t seem too “unmasculine”! I need several thank you cards, so I might just do a few of these!
