lt's All About Words





Although this is not a vinyl sticker it still fits into the lt's All  About Words theme 

I think this card has a bit of a grungy look and would be ideal for a man. I have used plain card and Tim Holtz patterned paper and a Universal George die and the greeting is from Xcut. Both available from Blue Edge Crafts
