Insomnia has set in so I decided to make an attempt at a card for my brother who has a birthday later this month. I must have taken this card apart and started over at least five times! I had completely different papers, embellishments and layout each time. There isnt a thing on this card that I started with but the clip art calendar. And I wonder why it takes me so long to do one scrapping project. I used ink this time on the edges of clip art and the tag. I was so nervous using it. I colored the calendar with chalk and circled the day of his birthday. I used ribbon with a pearl snap button from an old work shirt, burlap, and brads. On the inside, I used burlap as well. I painted a heart onto the piece and I really like how the paint comes out on the burlap which is by the way, a piece of old feed sack from our dairy. My brother will be brutally honest so I hope he likes the card. Im so new at making cards and its the first one Ive ever made him one in his 38 years. Thanks for stopping by!
