I needed to make a birthday card for my husband's birthday. I decided to use this pattern paper and found a half made card base from a previous attempt at a SFYTT card. I decided to use it and make it into something new. I haven't used "Lovely as a Tree" in a long time and I am short on masculine sets, so I thought I would ink it up. The brown ribbon really doesn't fit, but I actually liked how it looked because of the texture and stitching. I really should have added brown somewhere else in the card, but I liked it so I went with it.
I have admitted before that I don't like to add alot of bells and whistles to my husband's cards since they end up in the trash and I am usually the tosser. I only added brads and one pewter eyelet as far as hardware goes and I will probably take off the brads before I throw it away! Aren't I terrible?
I have been wanting to use this Sale-a-bration set since I have only used it once (I think). I thought it was about time. I added a bit of sponging and called it good. I will have the kids sign their names and write a nice note inside if they like. I guess I need to go make dinner! Thanks for fluttering by!
