ARGYLE GOOSE

What can I say about the majestic Canada Goose from the Wetlands set (page 116)? Other than that he is gorgeous, of course. And that he's the perfect model for a masculine card.

On my card, I used a brown that I don't use very often since Stampin' Up! introduced Soft Suede and Early Espresso several years ago. Those are my go to browns. Here I used Chocolate Chip. A nice change and it works so well with the now retired Naturals Ivory cardstock. 


For my background texture, I used the Boho Chic embossing folder Stampin' Up! introduced in their new catalog (page 174). I really love it, and know that I am going to be using it often. In this card, I especially like how the diamonds from the "argyle" trim are echoed in the embossing. It works.


I entered this gentle manly card into the Paper Players Theme Challenge #248 for this week:
