Greatest By Far

You can create this greatest by far card with the Clubhouse stamp set.  It’s another card I’m showcasing using that stamp set.  There always seems to be a shortage of male themed cards and I’m so happy that there are a few more options now.  The colors alone are perfect for the men in your life.
