Not So Simple Clean and Simple...

How can a woman be expected to be happy with a man who insists on treating her as if she were a perfectly normal human being. -Oscar Wilde

WOW, this layout (FTL86) is Not would think it would be a quick 5 minute card, but it is Not! Michelle posted that it was difficult and I kind of laughed at her...then I made one up last night. It took me 15 minutes of arranging and rearranging before I finally just glued the circles where I had them. LOL :)

I made this for my Mom to send to my Brother in Law so I grabbed some "Man of the House" paper and my circle punches. No ribbon, bling, stickles or flowers...just paper...but I really like how it turned out. The card base is Elzybells Kraft and I LOVE how thick and manly this paper is...not an ultra smooth cardstock and I really like that.

I used a few of the dotted stamps from Text Boxed to decorate the inside (I wish I had been a little more controlled on Where I stamped them, but it was late and I was tire! :D) the sentiment is from Birthday Basics...
