CAS-ual Fridays #54

It's Friday! That mean a new challenge!
 Most of you might consider this a REAL challenge because we will be making clean and simple manly card/pages with pattern paper! But hey, Father's Day is just around the corner....plus we can always use a masculine-themed thank you , hello, birthday...or even a retirement card!
Our sponsor : Gina K. Designs
We design team members get to play with this set of pattern paper called---Casual Fridays (how perfect is that!?). Here is my take:
Thank You
I am entering this card for the Moxie Fab World's Gingham Challenge ! What fun! I love paper-weaving since it is a perfect way to use the handsome-looking paper! I also stamped the bi-plane on the textured card stock. The sentiment is from SRM Stickers. Then I added a simple twine and voila!

Please link up your CAS project to CAS-ual Fridays by midnight May 31, Thursday. Can't wait to see your handsome creations! And don't forget that I also have a "Yes, Virginia...I'm Inspired!" (see here) challenge right here in my blog! Hope you can play along!

This card is great. I love the way that the weaving ends randomly & so doesn't give a set shape. I have real trouble doing random!

Love the shape that the weaving creates, but then comes together as a perfect square in the middle for the sentiment! Great card!
