Bravo for Menswear--Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #89

Bravo for menswear! Recently, I pulled out some of  my warm weather "at home wear" --- shorts,  pants, and oxford cloth shirts--purchased from the men's section at Old Navy. This is only one reason I love menswear--inexpensive comfortable clothing.  Another reason for my praise of menswear is I've always loved the patterns associated with menswear--houndstooth, argyle, pinstripe--very classy.

 I must shout  "Bravo" for the new background stamp set,Heirloom Patterns, from Waltzingmouse Stamps, which I used for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge .  This stamp set includes some of  these classic patterns.

I chose to follow Renee Lynch's design closely for a CAS card.

With the crisp patterns I just had to stamp the sentiment at an angle. :)

Thanks for the visit,

  8. Excellent! Wonderful background and CAS too. Isn't it amazing how men's wear can be less expensive then women's and still very stylish. I love my flannel shirts! Have a great weekend.
