Happy Birthday Boys

The biggest challenge PaperCrafters face is designing masculine birthday cards. For real. It’s just the way it is. So when I came across this grey argyle paper in the Clubhouse Suite, I knew I’d have to make at least one birthday for the boys out of it. My favorite two guys – my Dad and my Logan love them some golf, so the Clubhouse Suite was top of my wishlist and the argyle and plaid papers are on Par!
