Talking of Karl's birthday I thought that I would post the card that I made for him as the lovely Helene's challenge at Allsorts this week is cards for the men and boys.
As ever the picture isn't perfect but I hope that you can make out all the detail on it. I used We R Memory Keepers Vintage Distressed Jeans paper which I love and I distressed it a little more with TH distress tool and gold Adirondack paint Dabber. I also used grungepaper accents, alphabet and numbers, distressed and painted these with the gold. I have also embellished with a key hole (not easy to see) and attached a brass key. The corners and sprockets are metal, again, from Ideaology.
To finish off I have used Creative Expressions screw brads which are great fun to use.
I hope that you like my piece this week, Karl thought it was 'cool'!
Tomorrow is another busy day as I am going to the Parchment exhibition in Harrogate which I am very much looking forward to and next week we go away for a few days to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary so I hope the weather keeps behaving itself.
Pop over to the Allsorts Challenge blog to have a look at the fab DT inspiration.
I hope that you all have a go at the Challenge and also have a fabulous week.
Bye for now
