Older & Wiser

Pin It


It’s time to kick off a new Meljen’s Designs challenge.  This week, we are challenging you to use ORANGE.   I took the opportunity to make another birthday card for my stash using.  Better yet, it is a card for a man.  

 

 

I made faux brads to embellish the front of the card.   As much as I love buttons & twine, I thought I would add a little something extra.     Do you know how to make faux brads?   Let me know if your comments if you would like me to do a tutorial.

The inside is pretty plain, but I had to include a pun.  (You know I love punny cards.)

 

 

Don’t forget to link up your ORANGE project at the Meljen’s Designs blog.  While you are there, you can check out the fabulous projects from the rest of the DT.    Keep your eyes open,  Melissa is releasing her new digis for March.   You can get some peeks of the new images on the Meljen’s Designs blog.   (I LOVE the new images!)

 

Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great day!
