Checks and Plaid at Cardz 4 Guyz

This week at Cardz 4 Guyz we'd like to see masculine makes featuring gingham, checks or plaid as a prominent feature of the design.

I thought about using one of several Scotsman-in-kilt images that I have on various CDs, but I rather thought that *certain* readers <looking very hard in the direction of one or two people here> might start speculating about what they were wearing under their kilts and lower the tone if the whole thing! So instead I chose to use this tranquil fishing decoupage from the CD "The Best of la Pashe 2014" teamed with checked paper and vellum from my snippets box.

The purple check is a vellum that was part of the pullout section of Making cards magazine, years and years ago, this time adhered to white card, and the greeting panel and printed "ribbon" were from the same issue. Goodness knows where the green/cream check paper came from, it's leftover from something but exactly what has been lost in the mists of time!
