A Quick Male Card

Just a quick card to share today, to make for any male.
I made this for the Fiskarettes Design Team which I was a member of a while ago.
I saw the idea on Pinterest a while ago,and have made several varieties
depending on what type of shirt wearer I am making it for.

It could be made in subtle stripes, plain or any patterned paper,
to suit the type of shirt sleeve you require!
I have used nothing more than a paper trimmer, some glue, foam pads
and a black fine line pen.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
