You should have arrived from Pam's blog if not you can start at Lisa's blog or the entire line up at the bottom of the page.

As soon as I saw this sketch over at Sketch N Scrap, I knew I had the perfect paper for it!  I recently purchased this Deja Views Lucky Argyle paper at Tuesday Morning.  I have a son, so I knew I would be able to use it up.

I made several versions, not only with a Christmas theme but a masculine birthday theme.  

The Little Yellow Bicycle pins just make the Christmas version.

I really like how I found the label with "winter cream" on the paper and cut it out to show on the card.

This card is a modern style.  It is my favorite because I like all styles, I like to try my hand at every style even though I may not succeed.
