365 Cards Day 110 My Guy

For 365 Cards the Thursday challenge is make a masculine card, and use an argyle pattern.
I searched SCS for a different sketch, and here's the one I am using for this card...

Here's my take on this sketch. I made a card for my son to use for his Grandfather. This was the only argyle paper I could find in the thousands of designer sheets I have stored. I personally did not have any problem with the pink in the paper. My son told me that a male that is secure in who he is has no problem with pink. : ) (he's 14) So, I think it worked out OK....

1. DCWV cardstock, Argyle paper is chatterbox, Inc. double sided paper and both sides were used.
2. The cuddlebug folder was used on a deep bronze sheet of metal by EK success.
3. "Grampa" -/K & Company embossed paper
4. "You're my hero"- Mrs Grossmans scrap metal stickers

Trying to locate these very specific things I need to make the challenge cards has cemented the fact that I MUST get this room organized. I am taking off from work next week for my birthday and I think my "gift" to me will be to work on this room. Next week I will not do any challenges or make any cards until I have shifted this furniture around, and sorted paper and embellishments. I am not sure exactly how to do the paper. I had it stored by color, and then by occasion and then by patterns...I still have to work it out. But I am determined.
