Brads or Knot

The 3rd picture is of a card I made for my husband’s birthday according to the MFP SpeedyTV Friends of Speedy TV challenge to use 3 or more brads.  My husband’s favorite color is teal and he has been working with wood as of late, so made an appropriate card.  According to my son, it has plenty of “stuff” on it.  The sentiment is from the MFP Fabulous Dogs 2012 set.  Not sure where the fun screw head brads are from, but I’ve had them for a long time and love using them on masculine cards.  Embossed the sentiment with a fun embossing powder called By The Lake (Sparkle ‘n Sprinkle).

The first and second pictures are of the same card.  I made a pocket using knotted ribbon in the corner according to the MFP SpeedyTV Sketch With a Twist challenge.  The background was made using the Bare Trees stencil (Dreamweavers) and some distress ink (Ranger).  On Tuesday, I’ll have a tutorial on using stencils on here.  The bookmark is tucked in the pocket, but can be pulled out and used.  The set I used is called Enjoy The Sunshine (Gina K).

So now you have a couple of fun ways to dress up your cards. . .brads and knots.

Thanks for spending some time with me today!
