Good Morning Paper Shelter lovers!

We have a fun new challenge starting today.  Your theme for the week is:

A few weeks ago, my daughter and I were at the mall to do some shopping, and as we parked our car, an elderly gentleman passed by, walking toward his car.  Like so many men in that age group, he was perfectly dressed and groomed, and looked spectacular!  My daughter and I both commented on him, and that we hoped our own husbands would dress that smartly for a mere trip to the mall, when they reached that age.  

I have made a stepper card this week, using So Classy!  He is just so distinguished and polished, he reminded me of our attractive gentleman in the carpark, so I decided he was perfect for a birthday card for a grandpa in that age group.  

My dots and stripes are from the Dress My Crafts Dots n Stripes pack.  Unfortunately, it's a 6 x 6 paper pack, so there's a join behind the a in 'Gramps', but I'm hoping this particular Gramps won't notice.

I've used two pearl and gems corners and a strip of leather which I twirled along the bottom, tying it off with eyelets, and making a bow with it.  The Classic sentiment is a Clear Impressions stamp, and the other is an Apple Blossom stamp.  

I've cut my bold words and the number 80 on my Cameo, using red glitter cardstock.  They and the image have been attached to the card using puffy pads.

We have our usual fantastic prize up for grabs this week!  You can win a $30 store voucher if you've used a Paper Shelter product on your creation (recoloured image, black & white digi, or paper), or 3 digis of your choice if you've used a different brand.  You can enter the challenge up to 3 times, provided you've used a Paper Shelter product on at least one of them.

Thanks so much for popping in for a look today!

  1. I keep going back for one more look. What a gorgeous and masculine card for a grandpa. Love everything about it. You know this would make a perfect entry at the Crafty Gals Challenge blog. Our theme this fortnight is polka dots and or stripes. Very dapper grandpa with a gorgeous card. Man, what a wonderful combination. I think it's probably a lot of hubbie's dreams to be that distinguished in their old age :-)
    Have a wonderful day.
