Playing in Paradise #70

Happy Friday one and all, time for a new challenge for Playing in Paradise and I am suppose to be the hostess this week however right about now I am in a plane somewhere over the USA or Canada. A huge thank you to Pam for doing all the posting work in my absence.

The challenge was my idea though as I love texture on a card. My sister found this fabulous designer paper and let me have a sample. It almost feels like mulberry with glossy rubber bits on it.
In my eyes it was perfect for a masculine card.

Supplies: Natural Ivory and grey cardstock, Designer paper- Unknown, Stamp it - Happy Birthday , misc twine and circle punches,  Recollection gems.

Please visit the
